AdomdConnection.GetSchemaDataSet Method (String, String, AdomdRestrictionCollection, Boolean)


Updated: March 10, 2016

Returns schema information from a data source by using a schema name and namespace to identify the information, applying any specified restrictions to the information, and, optionally throwing an exception when inline errors occur.

Namespace:   Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient
Assembly:  Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient (in Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient.dll)

public DataSet GetSchemaDataSet(
	string schemaName,
	string schemaNamespace,
	AdomdRestrictionCollection restrictions,
	bool throwOnInlineErrors


Type: System.String

The name of the schema to be retrieved.

Type: System.String

The name of the schema namespace to be retrieved.

Type: Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient.AdomdRestrictionCollection

A collection of AdomdRestriction objects that specifies the values for the restriction columns used by the schema table.

Type: System.Boolean

If true, inline errors cause an exception to be thrown; otherwise DataRow.GetColumnError is used to determine the error generated.

Return Value

Type: System.Data.DataSet

A DataSet that represents the contents of the specified OLE DB schema table.

If throwOnInlineErrors is true, this method behaves identically to GetSchemaDataSet. If throwOnInlineErrors is false, and errors occur while retrieving schema information, the resulting DataSet may contain null cells that would not normally be null. To determine the details of the errors that occur, you can use the DataRow.GetColumnsInError, DataRow.GetColumnError, DataRow.HasErrors, DataSet.HasErrors, and DataTable.HasErrors methods and properties.
