OleDbConnection.ServerVersion Property

Gets a string that contains the version of the server to which the client is connected.

Namespace:  System.Data.OleDb
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

abstract ServerVersion : string with get 
override ServerVersion : string with get

Property Value

Type: System.String
The version of the connected server.


The connection is closed.

The ServerVersion property maps to the OLE DB DBPROP_DBMSVER property. If ServerVersion is not supported by the underlying OLE DB provider, an empty string is returned.

The version is of the form ##.##.####, where the first two digits are the major version, the next two digits are the minor version, and the last four digits are the release version. The provider must render the product version in this form but can also append the product-specific version—for example, "04.01.0000 Rdb 4.1". The string is of the form major.minor.build, where major and minor are exactly two digits and build is exactly four digits.

The following example creates an OleDbConnection and displays some of its read-only properties.
