UltraLite NT_FILE connection parameter

Names the new database file when creating a database. When opening a connection to an existing database, the parameter identifies the database.

  • DBF connection parameter.

  • If you do not set a value for the DBF connection parameter or this connection parameter, then the default value is \UltraLiteDB\ulstore.udb.


You should use the NT_FILE connection parameter for UltraLite client applications that use the same connection string to connect to a desktop database, and a database on other platforms.

This connection parameter takes precedence over the DBF parameter. If you are connecting from an UltraLite administration tool, or your connection object only connects to a desktop database, use the DBF connection parameter.

The value of NT_FILE must meet the file name requirements for Windows desktop platforms.

The path can be absolute or relative. If you include a directory as part of the file name, 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 semicolons.
