Help! How do I get MS Access Field Properties in VB.net?

P: n/a
Hi there
I am a bit new to vb.net. I have figured out how to use a data reader to get column and row information from my MS Access database using OLEDB. The problem is that while I can easily get the column names, I can NOT seem to get any properties associated with a given col

For example, I have configured specific CAPTIONS in my Access DB that I would like utilize in my vb.net program. Any help would be appreciated

Please don't take my word for it, but i am sure any additional functionality provided by a specific back-end can only be accessible programatically ONLY IF the specific ODBC driver supports such functionality

Did you try this in VB6, for example. Not by referencing the Access class by via ODBC.
