DBOption Object

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The DBOption object represents the settings for Microsoft SQL Server database options for a specific SQL Server database.

SQL-DMO object model that shows the current object

SQL Server database options control access to and behaviors for a specific SQL Server database. You can use the DBOption object to set the values for SQL Server database options.

To set a SQL Server database option

  1. Get the DBOption object from a Database object of a connected SQLServer object.

  2. Set properties to reflect the change you want in behavior. For example, set the value of the ReadOnly property to TRUE to enable read-only access to the database.

Changes to DBOption properties are reflected in the SQL Server database as they are made.


The DBOption object is compatible with instances of SQL Server version 7.0 and later. However, the DBOption2 object extends the functionality of the DBOption object for use with features that were introduced in SQL Server 2000.
