OdbcCommand.ExecuteReader Method

Sends the CommandText to the Connection and builds an OdbcDataReader.

Namespace:  System.Data.Odbc
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

public OdbcDataReader ExecuteReader()

You should set the CommandText property to the full ODBC call syntax for stored procedures. The command executes this stored procedure when you call ExecuteReader.

While the OdbcDataReader is used, the associated OdbcConnection is busy serving the OdbcDataReader. While in this state, no other operations can be performed on the OdbcConnection other than closing it. This is the case until the Close method of the OdbcDataReader is called.
