I'm using the FillSchema method of an OleDbDataAdapter to retrieve the schema of some tables in my DB2 database. Unfortunately, columns of type Date, Time, and Timestamp are all mapped to a System.DateTime type, which is too generic for my application - I need to display the actual type (i.e Date, Time or Timestamp).

Is it possible for me to intercept the OleDbType of the column before it's mapped? And even if I can do that, how could I then store the type correctly within a DataColumn?

Many thanks
