Retrieving recordset from a stored procedure

I am using VB 6 and SQL 7. I am trying to execute a stored procedure using ADO. This stored procedure creates a temptable and places values in it and then returns a record. When I execute this stored procedure in Query Analyzer, it works fine. But I can't get the results using ADO the way I currently have it written. Help! This is the way I currently am writing the code:

strSQL = "exec xxx.dbo.sp_GetValue 2, 'xxx.dbo.people'"
  rsAssignedInfo.Open strSQL, cnIssueDatabase, adOpenStatic

msgbox(rsAssignedInfo("issueid"))

lmred: There are two solutions to this, the basic reason is that because you have multiple steps in your stored procedure, SQL server is returning multiple recordsets, some of which are actually the messages that you see displayed when you run this in Query Analyzer. The options that you have are this:

1) Use SET NOCOUNT ON .. StoredProcedureCode .. SET NOCOUNT OFF to suppress the messages and only return the recordset that contains the data you want.

2) Use Set rsAssignedInfo = rsAssignedInfo.NextRecordset (perhaps more than once) until you get to the recordset that contains your data. As this is going to be the same every time you just need to find out how many closed recordsets are returned before the one with your data and use .NextRecordset method enough times to get to the correct recordset.

As advised, I added set nocount on and set nocount off, but I am still not receiving my results.

Can we see the stored procedure?

Maybe it is where I am placing the set nocount on. Where do I place it in the stored procedure. Before declarations?

Ok, try it like this instead:

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[sp_GetAssignedTo]

@IssueID int, @DBName varchar(200) AS

IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#rpt') IS NOT NULL DROP table #rpt

DECLARE @AssignedToName varchar(200)
DECLARE @AssignedTo varchar(200), @AssignedToDESC varchar(200), @separator INT, @key INT, @sql varchar(5000)
DECLARE @RetVal int

--select * from issueinfo
--set @IssueID = 348
--set @dbName = 'ErpIssues.docsadm.people'
SET NOCOUNT ON
select I.IssueID,I.AssignedTo as AssignedTo, @AssignedToDESC as AssignedToDESC
INTO #rpt
from Issueinfo I
where I.IssueID = @IssueID
--select * from #rpt
--Join ConnectorAssignedTo A on A.Issueid = I.IssueID
Declare csrUsers Cursor
For Select IssueId, AssignedTo, AssignedToDESC
from #rpt
For Update of AssignedToDESC
Open csrUsers
Fetch Next From csrUsers Into @IssueID, @AssignedTo, @AssignedToDESC
While @@Fetch_Status <> -1
BEGIN
--print @AssignedTo
SET @AssignedTo = @AssignedTo + ';' --make last value get decoded
 SET @AssignedToDESC = ''
    IF @AssignedTo is not null BEGIN
         WHILE CHARINDEX(';', @AssignedTo) > 0  
         BEGIN
              SET @separator = CHARINDEX(';', @AssignedTo)--get character index number
              SET @key = CAST(LEFT(@AssignedTo, @separator - 1) AS INT)  --find position of first separat0r
              --get user fullname
              SET @AssignedToName = ''
              print 'EXEC'
              EXEC @RetVal=sp_GetFullName @DBName, @Key, @AssignedToName OUTPUT
              --print 'here'
              --print @AssignedToName
              --PRINT @AssignedToDESC
              print @retval
              If @RETVAL = 0 BEGIN
              SET @AssignedToDESC = @AssignedToDESC +
                (SELECT CASE WHEN @AssignedToDESC IS NULL THEN ''
                             ELSE ';' + @AssignedToName  END)
              End
              SET @AssignedTo = SUBSTRING(@AssignedTo, @separator + 1, LEN(@AssignedTo) - @separator)
              print @assignedtoDESC
             END
   
    END
    SET @AssignedToDESC= SUBSTRING(@AssignedToDESC, 2,Len(@AssignedToDESC))  
UPDATE #rpt
 SET AssignedToDesc = @AssignedToDesc
 WHERE CURRENT OF csrUsers
 FETCH NEXT FROM csrUsers INTO @IssueID, @AssignedTo, @AssignedToDESC  
END --WHILE
CLOSE csrUsers
DEALLOCATE csrUsers

SELECT * FROM #rpt
/* This is optional but you can actually drop the temporary table here */
Drop Table #rpt
SET NOCOUNT OFF
GO

The extra Go statements will confuse the issue, it is better to leave them out.
