IDBDataSourceAdmin is an optional interface for creating, destroying, and modifying data stores.

It is important to distinguish between the data store and the data source object. The data store is the actual source of data, such as a server database, a file in a directory, or an e-mail system. The data source object is the object that represents, and is used by the consumer code to interact with, the data store.

The methods in this interface are intended to affect a data store, although OLE DB objects, such as the data source object, may incidentally be affected as well.




Creates and initializes a new data store.


Destroys the current data store.


Returns information about the data store creation properties supported by the provider.
