When the CommandType property is set to TableDirect, the CommandText property should be set to the name of the table or tables to be accessed. The user may be required to use escape character syntax or include qualifying characters if any of the tables named contain any special characters. All rows and columns of the named table or tables will be returned when you call one of the Execute methods. In order to access multiple tables, use a comma-delimited list, without spaces or padding, containing the names of the tables to access. When the CommandText property names multiple tables, a join of the specified tables is returned.
