Description

Creates a new IAQAADOQuery object and returns a reference to it.

Declaration

ADO.CreateADOQuery()

Result An IAQAADOQuery object

Applies To

The method is applied to the following object:

Result Value

An object of the IAQAADOQuery type.

Remarks

The IAQAADOQuery object is an analogue of a Borland VCL TADOQuery object. Methods and properties are identical.

For detailed information on the underlying TADOQuery object, see VCL documentation on ADODB classes.

Once the IAQAADOQuery object is created, you can use it to send queries to databases. To do this:

  • Establish a connection to the database (set the Connection or ConnectionString property).
  • Specify the SQL expression (set the SQL property).
  • If necessary, specify the query parameters (set the Parameters property).
  • Run the query using the Open or ExecSQL methods.

Example

The following code illustrates how you can use the IAQAADOQuery object to retrieve data from the databases. The TestProc routine executes the query and inserts results into the test log.

Notes:

  • This example uses the OrdersDB.mdb file that is part of the additional sample package. To use it, download this package from support.smartbear.com/downloads/testcomplete/samples/ and install it. After the installation is over, you can find the database in the <TestComplete 14 Samples>\Desktop\Checkpoints\XML\DataGridViewSample folder.

  • The syntax of the command’s query depends on the SQL provider you use. For instance, if you work through the Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 provider, you can specify parameters by their names. Some other providers may use question marks (?) as parameter placeholders (the first question mark corresponds to the first parameter, the second - to the second and so on). Some providers may support both techniques, or use their own syntax. For more information on the command syntax, see the database provider's documentation.

  • Using the Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 provider requires that you run your script in the 32-bit version of TestComplete.
