ADO CommandType Property

❮ Complete Command Object Reference

The CommandType property sets or returns a CommandTypeEnum value that defines the type of the Command object. Default is adCmdUnknown.

If you do not specify the type, ADO will need to contact the provider to determine the type of the command. However, if you do specify the type, ADO will be able to process the command faster. 




set conn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
conn.Open "c:/webdata/northwind.mdb"

set comm=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
