Working with Remote Data Using SQL Pass-Through

After you retrieve a result set using SQL pass-through, you can view and control the properties of your result set cursor using the Visual FoxPro functions CURSORGETPROP( ) and CURSORSETPROP( ). These are the same functions you use to set properties on an active view cursor.


Cursors are not objects and thus are not tied to the object model. However, you can view their properties, or attributes, with CURSORGETPROP() and set their properties with CURSORSETPROP().

Describes how to process multiple result sets using synchronous or asynchronous batch mode and non-batch mode processing.

Data Type Conversion Control

Explains how data types are mapped between OBDC or ADO and Visual FoxPro so you can predict how a remote server's data will be treated by your Visual FoxPro application.
