Return value from SQL stored procedure
Posted on 1998-07-14
I'm running calls to SQL Server stored procedures using Delphi's Stored procedure component. In it, there is a RETURN_VALUE parameter which does contain a value regardless what I might assign it in the SQL Server stored procedure. For example, in my SQL Server stored procedure, I make several SQL commands, update, insert, etc. At any point, the command might fail, ie, with an insert, the key might already exist. At this point, the stored procedure just stops and I don't know where it ended. I can't override the message that SQL Server displays, although I've tried with RaiseError and my own message, and I can't seem to retrieve a RETURN_VALUE to indicate where in the SQL stored procedure it failed. I need some feedback on this.
