Return Value

Type: System.Int32

An Integer that contains the ordinal position of the specified column.

GetOrdinal performs a case-insensitive lookup.

GetOrdinal is kana-width insensitive.

Because ordinal-based lookups are more efficient than named lookups, it is inefficient to call GetOrdinal within a loop. Save time by calling GetOrdinal once and assigning the results to an integer variable for use within the loop.
