OraAttribute Object


The OraAttribute object represents an attribute of a Value or REF instance of an OraObject or an OraRef.


The OraAttribute object can be accessed from the OraObject or OraRef object by creating a subscript that uses ordinal integers or by using the name attribute.

See the Value (OraAttribute) property for a table that identifies the attribute type and the return value of the Value property of the OraAttribute object:




The following example accesses the attributes of the ADDRESS value instance in the server. Before running the sample code, make sure that you have the necessary data types and tables in the database. See "Schema Objects Used in the OraObject and OraRef Examples".

Dim OraSession As OraSession 
Dim OraDatabase As OraDatabase 
Dim OraDynaset As OraDynaset 
Dim Address As OraObject 
Dim City As OraAttribute 
Dim State As OraAttribute 
'Create the OraSession Object. 
Set OraSession = CreateObject("OracleInProcServer.XOraSession") 
'Create the OraDatabase Object by opening a connection to Oracle. 
Set OraDatabase = OraSession.OpenDatabase("ExampleDb", "scott/tiger", 0&) 
'create a dynaset object from person_tab 
Set OraDynaset = OraDatabase.CreateDynaset("select * from person_tab", 0&)
'retrieve an address column from person_tab
'the Value property of OraField object returns Address OraObject 
Set Address = OraDynaset.Fields("Addr").Value 
'access the City attribute object 
Set City = Address("City") 
' display the value of City attribute Object 
MsgBox City.Value 
'access the State attribute object 
Set State = Address("State") 
'display the value of State attribute Object 
MsgBox State.Value
