    In This Topic

    The native .NET Framework data provider for SQL Server is used for connecting to the SQL Server databases.

    The .NET Framework Data Provider for SQL Server provides access to a SQL Server 7.0 or later using its own internal protocol. It is lightweight and performs well because it is optimized to access a SQL Server directly without adding an OLE DB or Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) layer.

    This section describes information about connection string parameters for SQL Server and data type mapping table.
