This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.
The ShortMonths property returns a SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) multistring containing a list of month name abbreviations for a language.
HRESULT GetShortMonths(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal);
SQL-DMO strings are always returned as OLE BSTR objects. A C/C++ application obtains a reference to the string. The application must release the reference using SysFreeString.
The list is ordered from month 1 (January) through month 12 (December). Month names are represented as three-character abbreviations.
