dbSendQuery

0th

Percentile

Execute a statement on a given database connection.

The function dbSendQuery only submits and synchronously executes the SQL statement to the database engine. It does not extract any records --- for that you need to use the function dbFetch, and then you must call dbClearResult when you finish fetching the records you need. For interactive use, you should almost always prefer dbGetQuery.

Usage
dbSendQuery(conn, statement, ...)
Arguments
conn
A DBIConnection object, as produced by dbConnect.
statement
a character vector of length 1 containing SQL.
...
Other parameters passed on to methods.
Value

An object that inherits from DBIResult. If the statement generates output (e.g., a SELECT statement) the result set can be used with dbFetch to extract records.Once you have finished using a result, make sure to disconnect it with dbClearResult.

Side Effects

The statement is submitted to the database server and the DBMS executes the statement, possibly generating vast amounts of data. Where these data live is driver-specific: some drivers may choose to leave the output on the server and transfer them piecemeal to R, others may transfer all the data to the client -- but not necessarily to the memory that R manages. See individual drivers dbSendQuery documentation for details.
