Components of SQL Server Native Client

 

Applies To: SQL Server 2016 Preview

SQL Server Native Client contains the following components:

ComponentDescription
sqlncli11.dllThe dynamic-link library (DLL) file that contains all of the SQL Server Native Client functionality. This includes the SQL Server Native Client OLE DB provider and the SQL Server Native Client ODBC driver.
sqlnclir11.rllThe accompanying resource file for the SQL Server Native Client library.
s10ch_sqlncli.chmThe Data Source Wizard help file that documents how to create a SQL Server data source using the SQL Server Native Client ODBC driver or the SQL Server Native Client OLE DB provider.
sqlncli.hThe SQL Server Native Client header file that contains all of the new definitions needed in order to use SQL Server Native Client. This header file replaces both the odbcss.h and the sqloledb.h header files.

Note: You cannot reference sqlncli.h and odbcss.h in the same program, but you can reference sqlncli.h and sqloledb.h in same program as long as sqloledb.h is defined first.
sqlncli11.libThe library file needed to directly call the bcp utility functions that are part of the SQL Server Native Client ODBC driver.

Note: If you do reference the sqlncli11.lib file in your programming code, you need to make sure that the sqlncli11.dll file is in your system path, and in the system path of the users that make use of your application.
