I am using Visual Basic 6 with Oracle 8i Database at the backend.
I have written a stored procedure on Oracle which has one input parameter and one output parameter.
How can i call the stored procedure from visual basic . I need to pass the input parameter while calling the procedure and store the result returned by Procedure via output parameter.

Thank You,

Naresh

I do something similar to:

Set cmd = New ADODB.Command
With cmd
   .ActiveConnection = "connection string goes here"
   .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
   .CommandText = "package.storedproc"
   .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("inputvar", adChar, adParamInput, 100, "inputvar value")
   .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("o_status", adInteger, adParamOutput)
   .Execute Options:=adExecuteNoRecords
End With

Debug.Print cmd("o_status").Value

Set cmd = Nothing

hi,
The following codes would sove your problem

With cmd
 
  .ActiveConnection = oradb  'Opening connection for Stored proc-
     'oradb is opened using the normal Ado Open and i tried with scott/tiger by creating a
     'stored procedure named pp with one number parameter
 
 
  Dim IntValue, IntRecsAffected As Integer
  IntValue = 120  'value passed (ONE PARAMETER ) to test the procedure
 
  .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
  .CommandText = "PP"   'pp  denotes the procedure name
  .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("intvalue", adInteger, adParamInput, 20, 20)
  .Execute IntRecsAffected, IntValue, Options:=adExecuteNoRecords
 
End With

Set cmd = Nothing

i have tried the above codes and the stored procedure works !

Regards,
