README How to obtain FAST_FORWARD cursor


[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]
This sample works only with SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server "Katmai". It will not work with any version of SQL Server earlier than SQL Server 2005.
The following example shows how to set the rowset properties to obtain a FAST_FORWARD cursor. After the properties are set, a SELECT statement is executed to retrieve and display the Name column of the Purchasing.Vendor table in the AdventureWorks database. This sample is not supported on IA64.

Scenario

For more information on this sample, see How to: Obtain a FAST_FORWARD Cursor in Books Online.

Languages

This sample uses Visual C++.

Prerequisites

Before running this sample, make sure the following software is installed:
*
The SQL Server Database Engine samples. These samples are included with SQL Server. You can download the latest version of the samples at the Microsoft SQL Server Developer Center.
  • .NET Framework SDK 2.0 or Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. You can obtain .NET Framework SDK free of charge. See Installing the .NET Framework SDK.

Building the Sample

  • This sample connects to your computer's default SQL Server instance (on some Windows operating systems, you will need to change (localhost) or (local) to the name of your SQL Server instance). To connect to a named instance, change the connection string from L"(local)" to L"(local)\\name" , where name is the named instance. By default, SQL Server Express installs to a named instance.
  • Make sure your INCLUDE environment variable includes the directory that contains sqlncli.h.
  • If you are using Visual Studio, load the GetFastForwardCursor.sln file and build it.
  • If you are using MSBuild.exe, invoke MSBuild.exe at a command prompt, passing it the GetFastForwardCursor.sln file: * MSBuild GetFastForwardCursor.sln *

Running the Sample

*
From Visual Studio, invoke Start Without Debugging (CTRL+F5).
  • If you built with MSBuild.exe, invoke GetFastForwardCursor.exe. © 2007 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
