Prompt Property-Dynamic (ADO)

Prompt Property-Dynamic (ADO)

 

Specifies whether the OLE DB provider should prompt the user for initialization information.

Prompt is a dynamic property, which may be appended to the Connection object's Properties collection by the OLE DB provider. To prompt for initialization information, OLE DB providers will typically display a dialog box to the user.

Dynamic properties of a Connection object are lost when the Connection is closed. The Prompt property must be reset before re-opening the Connection to use a value other than the default.

System_CAPS_noteNote

Do not specify that the provider should prompt the user in scenarios in which the user will not be able to respond to the dialog box. For example, the user will not be able to respond if the application is running on a server system instead of on the user's client, or if the application is running on a system with no user logged on. In these cases, the application will wait indefinitely for a response and seem to lock up.

Set cn = New Connection
cn.Provider = "SQLOLEDB"
cn.Properties("Prompt") = adPromptNever    ' do not prompt the user
