Property group: Data Source
Property set: DBPROPSET_DATASOURCE
Typical R/W: R/W
Description: Current Catalog
The name of the current catalog. The consumer can use the CATALOGS schema rowset to enumerate catalogs.
Setting DBPROP_CURRENTCATALOG only affects the initial session created with the data source object. This might not be the expected behavior of setting this property.
Some providers support changing the current catalog (database) on a connection through provider-specific mechanisms, such as executing SQL SET statements. However, to ensure interoperability and to prevent inconsistent provider states, consumers should instead change the current catalog by setting DBPROP_CURRENTCATALOG rather than by executing provider-specific statements.
