Hi,

Now I am using the CDatabase & CRecordSet classes to manipulate the database.

How can I call a stored procedure in MSSQL server in MFC?

Also, from calling that procedure, a string will be returned! How can I get this string?

Thanks!

Using the MSDN Library (or using the search on MS' site), search for "CRecordset AND stored AND procedure".  That should give you all of the details that you need.  (And will not cost you points!)

You've got to check out the stored procedure wizard on Code Projects. It's great for working with stored procedures in VC++/MFC:

you can call a stored procedure like this:

db.ExecuteSQL("Stored_Procedure_Name Param1, Param2,....");

db is an open CDatabase variable.

I don't know how to get the returned value, sorry.

Here is a useful piece of code.  It obtains one value from any SQL statement.  This turns out to be useful in all kinds of situations where you don't want to define a formal recordset using the ClassWizard.

//=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-= class Definition
#include <afxdb.h>
class CRsGetOneValue : public CRecordset
{
     public:
     CRsGetOneValue(CDatabase* pDatabase, LPCSTR szSQL );
     CString     m_sSQL;
     CString     m_sRetValue;
     virtual void DoFieldExchange(CFieldExchange* pFX);
     CString GetDefaultSQL() {return m_sSQL;};
};
//=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-= class Implementation

CRsGetOneValue::CRsGetOneValue(CDatabase* pdb, LPCSTR szSQL )
: CRecordset(pdb), m_sSQL(szSQL)
{
     m_sRetValue="";
     m_nFields= 1;
     m_nDefaultType= snapshot;
}
void CRsGetOneValue::DoFieldExchange(CFieldExchange* pFX)
{
     pFX->SetFieldType(CFieldExchange::outputColumn);
     RFX_Text(pFX, "", m_sRetValue);
}

//=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-= typical usage
void CD10WebDlg::OnButton1()
{
    CDatabase db;
    BOOL fRet= db.Open( "", FALSE, FALSE, "ODBC;DSN=MyDSN;UID=USER;PWD=PASSWORD", TRUE);
   
//    CString sSQL= "SELECT sNameLast FROM Inquiry";
//    CString sSQL= "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM Inquiry";
    CString sSQL= "{call OverDueAccts}";

    CRsGetOneValue rs( &db, sSQL );
    rs.Open( AFX_DB_USE_DEFAULT_TYPE, 0, CRecordset::executeDirect );

    TRACE( rs.m_sRetValue + "\r\n" );
}

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

As you can see, to execute a stored procedure, just pass
   "{call spName}"
in the ctor (no spaces between { and call).  You can also use any SELECT statement.  The single returned value will be a string.  If you need an int, just use (for instance):

   int nRet= atoi( rs.m_sRetValue );

One other note: If you expect the return value to be larger than 255 bytes, then you need to modify the RFX_Text call:

   RFX_Text(pFX, "", m_sRetValue, 2048);
