There is a table at


For most of the cases that interest us, the second column starts with
"An SQLULEN value that specifies (...)".

For example for SQL_ATTR_FETCH_BOOKMARK_PTR, it says "A SQLLEN * that
points to a binary bookmark value". In these cases (pointer to a
sequence of characters or sequence of bytes or ...), the size of the
memory area pointed to by the pointer is in the "StringLength"
argument, or some special values, e.g. to say "null-terminated string
of unspecified length" (SQL_NTS). The details of that are near the top
of that page.

See also
for SQLGetStmtAttr.
