The property was not set to a valid DbType.

The PrvDbType (where Prv represents the provider-specific prefix) and DbType are linked. Therefore, setting the DbType changes the PrvDbType to a supporting PrvDbType.

For a list of the supported data types, see the appropriate .NET Framework data provider PrvDbType member. For more information, see DataAdapter Parameters.
