Data types

The Camelot .NET Connector supports all major data types that can be used in SharePoint list columns. SharePoint has a quite different way of naming types than one would be used to as a programmer. Knowing about these types is important to make development more straight forward and also helps understanding the data architecture in SharePoint. This chapter gives an overview of the most common SharePoint data types and explains some of the associated attributes. For more information see Column Types.

The list schema contains information about all columns in a given SharePoint list or view. Schemas are retrieved through the SHOW COLUMNS command. The Type attribute in the schema indicates the SharePoint data type for each column.
