The OleDbType and DbType are linked. Therefore, setting the DbType changes the OleDbType to a supporting OleDbType.

For a list of the supported data types, see the appropriate OleDbType member. For more information, see DataAdapter Parameters (ADO.NET).

The following example creates an OleDbParameter and sets some of its properties.

public void CreateOleDbParameter() 
 {
    OleDbParameter parameter = new OleDbParameter("Description", OleDbType.VarChar, 88);
    parameter.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output;
 }
