OLE DB Provider for DB2

The Microsoft OLE DB Provider for DB2 contains the following features:

  • Interactive and scriptable Setup program
  • SNA Trace Utility and Trace Viewer
  • TCP/IP network connection
  • Execution of dynamic SQL commands (DDL and DML), including CALL statement for stored procedures
  • Customized Data Link property dialog boxes for creating and modifying file-persisted OLE DB data link files.

To use the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for DB2 with an OLE DB consumer application, you must either create a universal data link (.udl) file and call it from your application, or call the provider using a connection string that includes the provider name. Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) version 2.0 and later includes Microsoft Data Link, a generic method for managing and loading connections to OLE DB data sources. Microsoft Data Link also supports finding and storing connections to OLE DB data sources.

For more information about using .udl files or connection strings, see the OLE DB Provider for DB2 Programmer's Guide in the OLE DB Providers Programmer's Guides
