The JET_DBID data type contains the handle to the database. A database handle is used to manage the schema of a database. It can also be used to manage the tables inside of that database.
typedef unsigned long JET_DBID;
Handle to the database.
A value of JET_dbidNil indicates that the handle is invalid.
A database handle can be used only within the session in which it was created. The existence of a database handle corresponds to the logical open of a database. A logical open is different from the physical open of a database, which happens when a database is attached to the system.
Requires Windows Vista, Windows XP, or Windows 2000 Professional.
Requires Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, or Windows 2000 Server.
