Hi,
 This is a fairly basic question. I'm using the ODBC API (through VB - though that's not relevant). My problem is I have a stored procedure on an oracle database that I want to  see. Through sqlplus all I have to do is DESCRIBE myProc.

How can I do something similar using the ODBC api (it doesn't like describe).

I've tried it already.
All I can get out of doing that is whether or not the procedure is valid. I want to see the actual text of the procedure. (On sybase sp_helptext does it).

Thanks anyway

Use this
SELECT TEXT FROM ALL_SOURCE
WHERE NAME = <proc name must be in UPPER>
ORDER BY LINE
/

GOOD LUCK!
