Creating a SQL Server Native Client OLE DB Provider Application
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.
Creating a SQL Server Native Client OLE DB provider application involves these steps:
Establishing a connection to a data source.
Executing a command.
Processing the results.
