JetCloseFile Function

Windows

Last modified: January 09, 2012

Applies to: Windows | Windows Server

The JetCloseFile function closes a file that was opened with JetOpenFile after the data from that file has been extracted using JetReadFile.

JET_ERR JET_API JetCloseFile(
  __in          JET_HANDLE hfFile
);

Parameters

hfFile

The handle of the file to be read.

Return Value

This function returns the JET_ERR datatype with one of the following return codes. For more information about the possible ESE errors, see Extensible Storage Engine Errors and Error Handling Parameters.

Return code

Description

JET_errSuccess

The operation completed successfully.

JET_errClientRequestToStopJetService

It is not possible to complete the operation because all activity on the instance associated with the session has ceased as a result of a call to JetStopService.

JET_errInstanceUnavailable

It is not possible to complete the operation because the instance associated with the session has encountered a fatal error that requires that access to all data be revoked to protect the integrity of that data.

This error will only be returned by Windows XP and later releases.

JET_errInvalidParameter

One of the parameters provided contained an unexpected value or contained a value that did not make sense when combined with the value of another parameter. This can happen for JetCloseFile when:

  • The specified instance handle is invalid (Windows XP and later releases),

  • The specified file handle is invalid.

JET_errNoBackup

The operation failed because no external backup is in progress.

JET_errNotInitialized

It is not possible to complete the operation because the instance associated with the session has not been initialized yet.

JET_errRestoreInProgress

It is not possible to complete the operation because a restore operation is in progress on the instance associated with the session.

JET_errRunningInMultiInstanceMode

The operation failed because an attempt was made to use the engine in legacy mode (Windows 2000 compatibility mode) where only one instance is supported when in fact multiple instances already exist.

JET_errTermInProgress

It is not possible to complete the operation because the instance associated with the session is being shut down.

On success, the file handle is closed. If a database file was closed then the associated database patch file (if any) is destroyed.

On failure, no change occurs.

Remarks

The database engine currently only supports one open file through JetOpenFile at a time. If a file handle is opened using JetOpenFile then it must be closed using JetCloseFile before another file can be opened.
