ADO CreateParameter Method

The CreateParameter method creates and returns a Parameter object containing the specified properties like name, type, direction, size, and value.

Note: This method does not automatically add the new Parameter to the collection. To add the Parameter to the Parameters Collection, use the Append property.


Set objparameter=objcommand.CreateParameter

Parameter Description
name Optional. The name of the Parameter object.
type Optional. One of the DataTypeEnum constants that specifies the data type for the Parameter object. Default is adEmpty. If you choose a variable-length data type, you will also need to specify the Size parameter or the Size property. If you specify adDecimal or adNumeric data type, you must also set the NumericScale and the Precision properties of the Parameter object.
direction Optional. One of the ParameterDirectionEnum constants that defines the direction of the Parameter object. Default is adParamInput.
size Optional. Specifies the length of a variable-length data type, if such a type was declared in the Type parameter. Default is zero.
value Optional. The value of the Parameter object
