DataTableReader.GetProviderSpecificValue Method (Int32)
Gets the value of the specified column in provider-specific format.
Assembly: System.Data (in System.Data.dll)
Because the DataTableReader always returns the type stored within the underlying DataColumn, the value returned by calling the method always returns data of the same type as the data stored within the DataTable. When you work with the DataTableReader class, calling the method returns the same value and type as calling the GetValue method.
