Surely this has been done in the past.

I need to sometimes assign a NULL value to an ADO Parameter for supply to a parameterized query ... which is the best available routine to solve this?

TIA

Dim cmCommand as Adodb.command

set cmCommand = new Adodb.command
With cmCommand
  .ActiveConnection = g_cnConnection
  .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
  .CommandText = "sp_insert_user"
  ' [REDO] Use .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter
  ' if you need more speed.
  .Parameters.Refresh
  ' Either leave this out, and call the command,
  ' or set the value.
  .Parameters("@Username").value = Null
  .Execute
end with

I suppose there is no sense in reminding you to close your open questions, is there?  For the record:

Or, you could just omit the parameter and give the parameter within the SP a default value of null.

This also keeps the definition of the SP more consistant, i.e. So that you can see which parameters are optional.
