I'm writing an OLEDB provider.

I need the parameters sent by the consumer: user id, password, data Source and the catalog (database).

I was able to get the first 3 (user id, password and datasource), but I can't find how to get the catalog.

I will be very thankful to whoever will help me.

I mean something else ...

I get the user ID, password and dataSource using this:


 this->QueryInterface(IID_IGetDataSource, (void**)&spDataSource);
CComPtr<IDBProperties>  spProperties;

spDataSource->GetDataSource(IID_IDBProperties,                          (IUnknown**)&spProperties);

CDBPropIDSet      set[1];

set[0].SetGUID(DBPROPSET_DBINIT);

DBPROPSET*            pPropSet = NULL;
ULONG                  ulPropSet = 0;
CComVariant varObj;
 


hr = spProperties->GetProperties(1, set, &ulPropSet, &pPropSet);
            
for(ULONG u = 0; u < pPropSet[0].cProperties ; u++)
 ...

In the documentation i have found, it said that the property:
 DBPROP_INIT_CATALOG, is part of DBPROPSET_DBINIT.

However, what i get is only 12 properties (out of 24 written in the doecumentation), and DBPROP_INIT_CATALOG is not one of them.

How can i find this property ?
