DISCOVER_ENUMERATORS Rowset

Returns a list of names, data types, and enumeration values of enumerators supported by the Microsoft XML for Analysis (XMLA) provider for a specific data source. The XMLA Provider publishes all the enumeration constants that it recognizes.

The DISCOVER_ENUMERATORS rowset contains the following columns.
