UltraLite DBF connection parameter Next Page

UltraLite CE_FILE connection parameter

Performs two different functions:

Applies to

An UltraLite client application that connects to a Windows CE device in addition to another platform using the same connection string.

Alternate parameters

If you are connecting from an UltraLite administration tool, or your connection object only connects to a Windows CE database, use DBF.




The default depends on what you set:


Always explicitly specify the parameter; do not rely on the default behavior.


This parameter takes precedence over the DBF parameter.

The value of CE_FILE must meet the file name requirements for Windows CE.

If you include an absolute path to the database, then all directories must exist before setting the path to this file. UltraLite does not create them automatically.

Any leading or trailing spaces in parameter values are ignored. This connection parameter's value cannot include leading single quotes('), leading double quotes ("), or semi-colons(;).

The following example creates a new connection and identifies different database files for the desktop and Windows CE platforms:

Set Connection = DatabaseMgr.OpenConnection("DBF=d:\Dbfile.udb;CE_FILE=\myapp\MyDB.udb")
