OleDb.DataSource(connectionString as any, optional options as nullable record) as table

About

Returns a table of SQL tables and views from the OLE DB data source specified by the connection string connectionString. connectionString can be text or a record of property value pairs. Property values can either be text or number. An optional record parameter, options, may be provided to specify additional properties. The record can contain the following fields:

  • CreateNavigationProperties : A logical (true/false) that sets whether to generate navigation properties on the returned values (default is true).
  • NavigationPropertyNameGenerator : A function that is used for the creation of names for navigation properties.
  • Query : A native SQL query used to retrieve data. If the query produces multiple result sets, only the first will be returned.
  • HierarchicalNavigation : A logical (true/false) that sets whether to view the tables grouped by their schema names (default is true).
  • ConnectionTimeout : A duration which controls how long to wait before abandoning an attempt to make a connection to the server. The default value is driver-dependent.
  • CommandTimeout : A duration which controls how long the server-side query is allowed to run before it is canceled. The default value is ten minutes.
  • SqlCompatibleWindowsAuth : A logical (true/false) that determines whether to produce SQL Server-compatible connection string options for Windows authentication. The default value is true.

The record parameter is specified as [option1 = value1, option2 = value2...] or [Query = "select ..."] for example.
