FIX: CCOLUMNSRow Column Names Are Incorrect

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Symptoms
The OLE DB Provider Templates define the CCOLUMNSRow class assigned to implement OLE DB's COLUMNS rowset. In the Atldb.h header file where this class is defined, the Provider column map for the class contains column names that are different from the OLE DB specification.

NOTE: It has been reported that Intersolv's Reflector looks for columns having the name according to the OLE DB specification, so customers using this product will encounter a problem with providers generated by the wizard.
Resolution
This file is located in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\ATL\Include directory.

The following shows the incorrect code:
BEGIN_PROVIDER_COLUMN_MAP(CCOLUMNSRow)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("TableCatalog", 1, m_szTableCatalog)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("TableSchema", 2, m_szTableSchema)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("TableName", 3, m_szTableName)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("ColumnName", 4, m_szColumnName)                  	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("Column",5, m_guidColumn)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("ColumnPropID",6, m_ulColumnPropID)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("OrdinalPosition",7, m_ulOrdinalPosition)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("ColumnHasDefault",8, m_bColumnHasDefault)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("ColumnDefault",9, m_szColumnDefault)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("ColumnFlags",10, m_ulColumnFlags)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("IsNullable",11, m_bIsNullable)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("DataType",12, m_nDataType)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("Type",13, m_guidType)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("CharMaxLength",14, m_ulCharMaxLength)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("CharOctetLength",15, m_ulCharOctetLength)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("NumericPrecision",16, m_nNumericPrecision)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("NumericScale",17, m_nNumericScale)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("DateTimePrecision",18, m_ulDateTimePrecision)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("CharSetCatalog", 19, m_szCharSetCatalog)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("CharSetSchema", 20, m_szCharSetSchema)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("CharSetName", 21, m_szCharSetName)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("CollationCatalog", 22, m_szCollationCatalog)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("CollationSchema", 23, m_szCollationSchema)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("CollationName", 24, m_szCollationName)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("DomainCatalog", 25, m_szDomainCatalog)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("DomainSchema", 26, m_szDomainSchema)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("DomainName", 27, m_szDomainName)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("Description", 28, m_szDescription)END_PROVIDER_COLUMN_MAP()<BR/>				

The header file needs to be changed to reflect the correct column names. The following shows the corrected code:
BEGIN_PROVIDER_COLUMN_MAP(CCOLUMNSRow)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("TABLE_CATALOG", 1, m_szTableCatalog)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("TABLE_SCHEMA", 2, m_szTableSchema)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("TABLE_NAME", 3, m_szTableName)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("COLUMN_NAME", 4, m_szColumnName)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("COLUMN_GUID",5, m_guidColumn)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("COLUMN_PROPID",6, m_ulColumnPropID)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("ORDINAL_POSITION",7, m_ulOrdinalPosition)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("COLUMN_HASDEFAULT",8, m_bColumnHasDefault)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("COLUMN_DEFAULT",9, m_szColumnDefault)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("COLUMN_FLAGS",10, m_ulColumnFlags)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("IS_NULLABLE",11, m_bIsNullable)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("DATA_TYPE",12, m_nDataType)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("TYPE_GUID",13, m_guidType)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("CHARACTER_MAXIMUM_LENGTH",14, m_ulCharMaxLength)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("CHARACTER_OCTET_LENGTH",15, m_ulCharOctetLength)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("NUMERIC_PRECISION",16, m_nNumericPrecision)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("NUMERIC_SCALE",17, m_nNumericScale)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("DATETIME_PRECISION",18, m_ulDateTimePrecision)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("CHARACTER_SET_CATALOG", 19, m_szCharSetCatalog)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("CHARACTER_SET_SCHEMA", 20, m_szCharSetSchema)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("CHARACTER_SET_NAME", 21, m_szCharSetName)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("COLLATION_CATALOG", 22, m_szCollationCatalog)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("COLLATION_SCHEMA", 23, m_szCollationSchema)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("COLLATION_NAME", 24, m_szCollationName)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("DOMAIN_CATALOG", 25, m_szDomainCatalog)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("DOMAIN_SCHEMA", 26, m_szDomainSchema)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("DOMAIN_NAME", 27, m_szDomainName)	PROVIDER_COLUMN_ENTRY("DESCRIPTION", 28, m_szDescription)END_PROVIDER_COLUMN_MAP()
