dbColumnInfo {Rdbi}R Documentation

Returns type information about a result column

Description

dbColumnInfo is a generic function that, when called on a result object, returns type information about tuple fields in the result.

Usage

dbColumnInfo(result)

Arguments

result A query result object.

Value

Returns a data frame with each row corresponding to a different field in the result. Rows are named for each field. Any available information about a field can be presented in columns of the data frame. The most important of these is probably a "Type" column that can be used to convert strings returned by the query into appropriate R types.
