ADO.NET Provider for SASDataSets

Build 21.0.7940

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 SASDataSetsDataReader 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 = "URI=C:\myfolder;";

using (SASDataSetsConnection conn = new SASDataSetsConnection(connectionString)) {
  SASDataSetsCommand cmd = new SASDataSetsCommand("SELECT * FROM Account WHERE Industry = 'Floppy Disks'", conn);
  SASDataSetsDataReader 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 = "URI=C:\myfolder;"

Using conn As New SASDataSetsConnection(connectionString)
  Dim cmd As New SASDataSetsCommand("SELECT * FROM Account WHERE Industry = 'Floppy Disks'", conn)
  Dim rdr As SASDataSetsDataReader = 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
