Numeric datatype?

I am trying to run this stored procedure from VB that should give me a return value. I am having trouble because the return paramter in the stored procedure is a NUMERIC datatype in SQL Server. I am not sure how I am supposed to deal with that on the VB side of things...Any ideas?

Dim sSql As String
Dim iID As Integer
Dim cmd As New ADODB.Command
Dim prm1 As ADODB.Parameter
Dim prm2 As ADODB.Parameter

sSql = strTableOwner & ".spNumbers"
With cmd
    .ActiveConnection = ConnectHist.ActiveConnnectionHist
    .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
    .CommandText = sSql
    .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("prm1", adChar, adParamInput, 15, ID)
    .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("prm2", adNumeric, adParamOutput, , iID)
    iID = cmd("prm2")
End With

Hi jk_nj,

Treat it as a double rather than an integer, numeric has a decimal component as does a double value.
