The operation completed successfully.

JET_errFixedDDL

JET_errFixedInheritedDDL

An attempt was made to delete an index from a template table. A template table has fixed DDL.

JET_errIndexNotFound

The index named in szIndexName was not found.

On success, the currency is set before the first record.
