Property (As String )
aDatabaseField.StringValue = newStringValue
or
StringValue = aDatabaseField.StringValue

Supported for all project types and targets.

Used to get and set the values of String/Character field types.

Notes

If the field is not of this type, StringValue will try to return the value as a String. SQLiteDatabase converts text to UTF-8 text encoding.

When using this property to assign binary data, no encoding is added.

For situations where you need to set a database column to NULL, you should use the Value property like this:

rs.Edit
rs.Field("MyStringColumn").Value = Nil // sets to NULL in the database
rs.Update

Sample Code

Get the string value of a column in a RecordSet:

// rs is a RecordSet with a string column called "ProductName"
Dim productName As String
productName = rs.Field("ProductName").StringValue

Set the string value of a column in a RecordSet:

// rs is a RecordSet with a string column called "ProductName":
rs.Edit
rs.Field("ProductName").StringValue = "Generic Widgets"
rs.Update
