The type of a Command object.






Data Type


LONG        One of the CommandType Enum Values




Returns one of the CommandTypeEnum values:


If the CommandType property value equals adCmdUnknown (the default value), you may experience diminished performance because ADO must make calls to the provider to determine if the CommandText property is an sql statement, a stored procedure, or a table name. If you know what type of command you're using, setting the CommandType property instructs ADO to go directly to the relevant code. If the CommandType property does not match the type of command in the CommandText property, an error occurs when you call the Execute method.
