Put_Value Method


Inserts values into the table parameter.


OraParamArray.Put_Value(value, index)


The arguments for the method are:

Arguments Description
[in] value A Variant representing the value to insert.
[in] index An Integer representing the index value of the object.


This method should be used to insert a value before accessing a row in a table. A row does not contain a valid value until a row is assigned a value. Any reference to an unassigned row in the table raises an OLE Automation error.

The value argument can be an Oracle Database 10g object, such as an OraBLOB. For Put_Value, a copy of the object is made at that point in time, and Get_Value must be accessed to obtain a new object that refers to that index value. For example, if iotype is ORATYPE_BOTH and an OraBLOB obtained from a dynaset is passed in as the input value, Get_Value needs to be called after the SQL has been executed to obtain the newly updated output value of the ParamaterArray.

Similar to a dynaset, the object obtained from ParamaterArray Get_Value method always refers to the latest value for that ParamaterArray index. The Visual Basic value Null can also be passed as a value. The Visual Basic value EMPTY can be used for BLOB and CLOB to indicate an empty LOB, and for OBJECT, VARRAY and NESTED TABLE to indicate an object whose attributes are all Null.

When binding to RAW columns (ServerType ORATYPE_RAW_BIN) value should be a byte array.
