ParentURL Property (ADO)

Indicates an absolute URL string that points to the parent Record of the current Record object.

Returns a String value that indicates the URL of the parent Record.

The ParentURL property depends on the source used to open the Record object. For example, the Record can be opened with a source that contains a relative path name of a directory referenced by the ActiveConnection property.

Suppose "second" is a folder contained under "first". Open the Record object by using the following syntax:

record.ActiveConnection = "http://first"
record.Open "second"

Now, the value of the ParentURL property is "http://first", the same as ActiveConnection.

The source can also be an absolute URL such as, "http://first/second". The ParentURL property is then "http://first", the level above "second".

This property may be a null value if:

  • There is no parent for the current object; for example, if the Record object represents the root of a directory.

  • The Record object represents an entity that cannot be specified with a URL.

This property is read-only.

NoteNote

This property is only supported by document source providers, such as the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Internet Publishing. For more information, see Records and Provider-Supplied Fields.

NoteNote

URLs using the http scheme will automatically invoke the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Internet Publishing. For more information, see Absolute and Relative URLs.

NoteNote

If the current record contains a data record from an ADO Recordset, accessing the ParentURL property causes a run-time error, indicating that no URL is possible.
