Options Property Flag Values

The Options property flag values are:

Constant Value Description
ORADB_DEFAULT &H0& Accepts the default behavior.
ORADB_ORAMODE &H1& Lets Oracle Database set default field (column) values.
ORADB_NOWAIT &H2& Does not wait on row locks when executing a SQL "SELECT ... FOR UPDATE" statement.

These values can be found in the oraconst.txt file. Options may be combined by adding their respective values.

This property is the same as the options passed to the OpenDatabase method. Just as with OpenDatabase, these options affect the OraDatabase object and all associated dynasets created from that database.

Changing this property does not take effect until a Refresh method is sent to the data control.
