ODBC Driver for SQL Server

Build 20.0.7587

From C/C++

This section provides a reference to ODBC compliance and a walk-through to writing ODBC data access code to SQL Server in C/C++.

See SQL Compliance for the SQL syntax.

Connecting from C/C++

See Getting Started for the prerequisite information you need to deploy the driver and configure the connection to SQL Server. Connecting shows how to connect with ODBC functions.

Executing SQL

Use ODBC functions to execute SQL to SQL Server:

  • See Querying Data to execute SELECT statements and iterate over the results.
  • See Updating Data to execute other SQL data manipulation statements.
  • See Parameterized Statements to execute parameterized statements. Parameterized statements provide a means to efficiently execute queries more than once and to mitigate SQL injection attacks.
  • See Batch Processing to take advantage of the bulk processing functionality in SQL Server.
  • See Discovering Schemas to obtain schema information, such as the available tables, columns, keys, and types.

Executing Stored Procedures

See Executing Stored Procedures to execute stored procedures as SQL statements.
