ADO Connection Object DefaultDatabase Property

The default database for a Connection object. This property is not currently supported on UNIX.

DefaultDatabase Property Return Values

Sets or returns a String that evaluates to the name of a database available from the provider.

DefaultDatabase Property Remarks

Use the DefaultDatabase property to set or return the name of the default database on a specific Connection object.

If there is a default database, SQL strings may use an unqualified syntax to access objects in that database. To access objects in a database other than the one specified in the DefaultDatabase property, you must qualify object names with the desired database name. Upon connection, the provider will write default database information to the DefaultDatabase property. Some providers allow only one database per connection, in which case you cannot change the DefaultDatabase property.

Some data sources and providers may not support this feature, and may return an error or an empty string.

Remote Data Service Usage: This property is not available on a client-side Connection object.
