> 1

Changes are sent using batches of UpdateBatchSize operations at a time.

When setting this to a value other than 1 ,all the commands associated with the DbDataAdapter must have their UpdatedRowSource property set to None or OutputParameters. An exception will be thrown otherwise.

Use the UpdateBatchSize property to update a data source with changes from a DataSet. If the data provider supports batch processing, this can increase application performance by reducing the number of round-trips to the server. In ADO.NET 2.0, this property is supported for the .NET data providers for SQL Server (SqlClient) and Oracle (OracleClient). See Performing Batch Updates with a DataAdapter for more information.

An ArgumentOutOfRangeException will be thrown if the value is set to a number less than zero.
