Not all properties of Column objects may be supported by your data provider. An error will occur if you have set a value for a property that the provider does not support. For new Column objects, the error will occur when the object is appended to the collection. For existing objects, the error will occur when setting the property.

When creating Column objects, the existence of an appropriate default value for an optional property does not guarantee that your provider supports the property. For more information about which properties your provider supports, see your provider documentation.
