ExecuteSQL -- Funtion Marked as restricted????

I am trying to run a stored proc on Oracle using VB4.

I can connect to the database using
set db = opendatabase ("", false, false, connnect$)

But when I try:

Noofrows = db.ExecuteSQL (PROC_NAME)
I get an error saying "Function marked as restricted or ..uses OLE type not supported by VB"

The oracle stored procedure does nothing apart from inserting a record in a table.  it works properly from SQL Plus.  Also it DID WORK with VB4 and then all of a sudden it started giving this error.

I can't even execute an action query using db.Execute ..the error is "Invalid Action"!!!!

The tables, database belong to me and I have all rights and priviledges.  I have checked the syntax of my code umpteen times (its correct!!).

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You might want to provide some more code, like what PROC_NAME is set to...  I use Oracles Objects for OLE and do the following to open the database:

Public OraSession As Object
Public oraDatabase As Object

Set OraSession = CreateObject("oracleinprocserver.xorasession")

Set oraDatabase = OraSession.dbopendatabase(DatabaseName, CONNECTS$, 0&)

Then I can execute an SQL statement as follows:

oraDatabase.ExecuteSQL (ValidSQLStatement)

Let me know if this helps or you need more info..
