Its not something that you can find on the SQL Server. Its a property of the OLEDB connection you are using in your application.

You can do this:

Dim adoCmd
Set adoCmd = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")

Dim sBasePath
sBasePath = adoCmd.Properties("OLE DB Version")

It is a dynamic property of an ado/oledb connection

On the left side of the page, you can follow the arrows all the way up the "tree" of what it all means ("Dynamic Properties", "Programming ADO SQL Applications", etc)

"which tool? where?"

The left side of the msdn page you mention.

The OLEDB Version is a property of the connection, not of the server or database.

"Applies To:Connection Object"

So this is not something that translates to t-sql or any other sql dialect. It's not querying the server or database, it's determining the supported general oledb version by the used oledb provider, so it's a query towards the driver.

Bye, Olaf.

OK - in that case, can we determine which is the highest "OLE DB provider" available for any connection on the server or for any DB?

perhaps through Dos command or Javascript code?

where(which tool) do you use to run derekkromm's code?
----------------

Dim adoCmd
Set adoCmd = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")

Dim sBasePath
sBasePath = adoCmd.Properties("OLE DB Version")
