ADO.NET Provider for AlloyDB

Build 23.0.8770

Result Sets

You can access the same column information about the results of a query that you can for table schemas. See Columns for the columns returned.

Retrieving Result Set Metadata

You can use the GetSchemaTable method of the AlloyDBDataReader to retrieve result set metadata. Call GetSchemaTable after calling ExecuteReader.

Each row of the DataTable describes a column in the query's result.


string connectionString = "User=alloydb;Password=admin;Database=alloydb;Server=;Port=5432";

using (AlloyDBConnection conn = new AlloyDBConnection(connectionString)) {
  AlloyDBCommand cmd = new AlloyDBCommand("SELECT * FROM \"alloydb\".\"schema01\".Orders WHERE ShipCountry = 'USA'", conn);
  AlloyDBDataReader rdr = cmd.ExecuteReader();
  DataTable schemaTable = rdr.GetSchemaTable();
  foreach (DataRow row in schemaTable.Rows) {
    foreach (DataColumn col in schemaTable.Columns) {
      Console.WriteLine("{0}: {1}", col.ColumnName, row[col]);


Dim connectionString As String = "User=alloydb;Password=admin;Database=alloydb;Server=;Port=5432"

Using conn As New AlloyDBConnection(connectionString)
  Dim cmd As New AlloyDBCommand("SELECT * FROM \"alloydb\".\"schema01\".Orders WHERE ShipCountry = 'USA'", conn)
  Dim rdr As AlloyDBDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
  Dim schemaTable As DataTable = rdr.GetSchemaTable()
  For Each row As DataRow In schemaTable.Rows
    For Each col As DataColumn In schemaTable.Columns
      Console.WriteLine("{0}: {1}", col.ColumnName, row(col))
End Using
