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 Rule2 object exposes the attributes of a single Microsoft SQL Server data-integrity rule and extends the functionality of the Rule object.
The Rule2 object extends the functionality of the Rule object for use with features that were introduced in SQL Server 2000. It also inherits the properties and methods of the Rule object.
The IsDeleted property of the Rule2 object may not be compatible with instances of SQL Server version 7.0 or earlier. For more information about using the Rule2 object in an application that also runs with an instance of SQL Server 7.0, refer to the Remarks section of the IsDeleted property. For more information, see Programming Extended SQL-DMO Objects.
