Generate Statistics With the OpenSchema Method

8,834 Recognized Expert Expert
In last week's Tip, I showed you how to use the ISAMStats Method of the DBEngine (DAO) to return vital statistics concerning Query executions such as: Disk Reads and Writes, Cache Reads and Writes, and Locks placed and released. As promised, in this week's Tip I'll demonstrate how to accomplish parallel functionality within the context of ADO using the OpenSchema Method of the Connection Object.

We indicate to the OpenSchema Method that we would like a Provider-specific set of information by providing it a magic number called a GUID instead of the traditional Constant value indicating a specific Schema. A Recordset is subsequently filled with the information that we need.

Unlike the ISAMStats Method, we can Reset all the statistics at once. Once we've Reset the statistics, we can then execute a Query to refill the statistics and then retrieve them. To do this, we use the OpenSchema Method of the Connection Object, which returns a one-row Recordset Object filled with the statistics in various Fields.

I know you are all anxiously waiting, so let's get to the meat-and-potatoes of this Tip. I've encapsulated all logic in a Sub-Routine Procedure called GetADO_ISAMStat s which has two Arguments. In this specific case, I'll pass to the Routine the name of a Stored Query (qrySelect) and a Boolean Value (True) indicating that the code will attempt to open a Recordset instead of executing a Query. I could very well have passed the Routine an SQL Statement reflecting an Action Query (Update, Delete, Append, Make Table) and then the value False to execute the SQL Statement.

qrySelect is a simple Select Query which returns values from a Table containing 1,101,764 Records. Criteria are set on two Fields just to make things a little interesting.

The Sub-Routine code, the Call to the Routine, and the generated statistics are listed below for your viewing pleasure. See last week's Tip for reference if you so desire.

Hi all there, I have developed an ASP script that is able to read the structure of an Ms Access database ( via object objConn.OpenSchema(27) ) and to identify the foreign Keys columns and tables (via rstSchema("FK_COLUMN_NAME") and rstSchema("FK_TABLE_NAME")). I wonder whether there is a way to read the displayed field name of the foreign key too.
