Hi I am using the following code to get the Access column types for all tables.
It all works except for the line 'XXXXX
What should I use at this line to get the column type

    Sub Get_Access_Schema_Info()

        Try
            Dim oColumnName As String
            Dim oColumnType As String

            Dim cn As New OleDbConnection(Globals.ThisAddIn.oRIGHT.lblConnectionString.Text)
            cn.Open()

            'Retrieve the tables from the schema.
            Dim SchemaTable As DataTable = _
            cn.GetOleDbSchemaTable(schema:=Data.OleDb.OleDbSchemaGuid.Tables, _
            restrictions:=New Object() {Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, "Table"})

            Dim oIndex As Integer = -1

            For CountTables As Integer = 0 To SchemaTable.Rows.Count - 1

                oIndex = oIndex + 1
                'Get the table name.
                Dim TableName As String = SchemaTable.Rows(index:=CountTables)!TABLE_NAME.ToString()

                'Get the column names in the table.
                Dim SchemaColumn = cn.GetOleDbSchemaTable(schema:=OleDbSchemaGuid.Columns, _
                restrictions:=New Object() {Nothing, Nothing, TableName, Nothing})


                'Get each column name

                For CountColumns As Integer = 0 To SchemaColumn.Rows.Count - 1

                    oIndex = oIndex + 1

                    oColumnName = SchemaColumn.Rows(index:=CountColumns)!COLUMN_NAME.ToString
                    oColumnType = SchemaColumn.Rows(index:=CountColumns)!COLUMN_TYPE.ToString  'XXXXX

                Next

            Next CountTables

            cn.Close()

            cn.Dispose()

            cn = Nothing

        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox ex.Message)
        Finally
            'cn = Nothing
        End Try

    End Sub
