DatabaseName Property

Applies To

Oracle Data Control


The Oracle SQL*Net specifier used when connecting the data control to an Oracle database. Read/write at design time and run time.


oradata1.DatabaseName = [ DatabaseName ]


The Oracle SQL*Net specifier should include the Oracle SQL*Net protocol identifier, Oracle database name, and optional database instance. (SQL*Net aliases can also be used.) This string is passed to the OpenDatabase method of the OraSession object when the control is refreshed. Changing this property does not take effect until a Refresh method is sent to the data control.

If the data control is refreshed and DatabaseName has not been specified, the refresh fails.

Examples of valid DatabaseName properties include:

"mydbalias"(Where mydbalias represents "t:mfg:prod")
