Processing Results How-to Topics (OLE DB)
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.
Processing results in an OLE DB application involves first determining the characteristics of the result set, and then retrieving the data into program variables. If the command executes a stored procedure, you also must know how to process return codes and output parameters from the stored procedures.
