public OdbcConnection Connection { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Data.Odbc.OdbcConnection
The connection to a data source. The default is a null value.


The Connection property was changed while a transaction was in progress.

You cannot set the Connection, CommandType, and CommandText properties if the current connection is performing an execute or fetch operation.

If you set Connection while a transaction is in progress and the Transaction property is not null, an InvalidOperationException is generated. If you set Connection after the transaction has been committed or rolled back, and the Transaction property is not null, the Transaction property is then set to a null value.
