stored procedures

How do I execute a stored procedure on a Unix platform with DB2600 from a visual basic 4.0 app using ODBCAPI's. Having a great deal of difficulty with this, and any help would be great.
thanks..bt

When you want to call stored procedure in ODBC you
have to use SQL syntax:
"{ call procName param1 param2 ...}"
"{ .. }" - is important, this couse driver will not try to
look into the sql statement.

So written SQL statement you can use in SQLPrepare - SQLExecute
(for SELECT type procedure) or in SQLExecDirect (INSERT, UPDATE
DELETE or other with no resulset procedure).

I do not know DB2 but this work for other SQL DBs. If in DB2
is some other sysntax for stored procedures (but I don't think so) use this syntax with "{ .. }".
