Table-Valued Parameters (SQL Server Native Client)
SQL Server Native Client (SNAC) is not supported beyond SQL Server 2012. Avoid using SNAC in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use it. The Microsoft ODBC Driver for SQL Server provides native connectivity from Windows to Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Azure SQL Database.
Table-valued parameters were introduced in SQL Server 2008, and provide an efficient way to pass multiple rows of data to the server. Table-valued parameters provide functionality similar to parameter arrays, but they offer more flexibility and closer integration with Transact-SQL, and can frequently improve performance. Table-valued parameters can also participate in set-based operations, whereas parameter arrays cannot.
