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)

Public Overrides ReadOnly Property ServerVersion As String

Property Value

Type: System.String

The version of the connected server.

Exception Condition
InvalidOperationException

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.

Public Sub OpenConnection(ByVal connectionString As String)

    Using connection As New OleDbConnection(connectionString)
        Try
            connection.Open()
            Console.WriteLine("ServerVersion: {0}", connection.ServerVersion)

        Catch ex As Exception
            Console.WriteLine(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Using
End Sub
