Hi,
I have a data which exceeds the SQL limit for a varchar which is 8000 so i decided to use the Text variable instead for my table. As input parameter, i used AsMemo. The stored procedure that i called to which i pass the AsMemo param should return a simple "select 'SUCCESS' " or " select 'Error' " after i call  "Open". But instead i get an error saying "error creating cursor handle.". why is this? any solution ot my problem?
thanks in advance!

as you get no resultset back from the storedProcedure
(get only a flag (success/error) back) you can't use open.

-> use execute instead and after this read-out the returnvalue

Hi,
there should be a result since at the end of the stored proc i have the either select 'Success' or select 'Error.'

what do you mean by:

-> use execute instead and after this read-out the returnvalue

how do i execute and read the return value?

depending what connectionType (ado/bde/other) u use

a sample using ado


//filling input Parameters (sample-names)
ADOStoredProc1.ParamByName('AParameterName').Value := Whatever;
//calling StoredProc
ADOStoredProc1.ExecProc;
//read-Out ReturnValue
result := ADOStoredProc1.ParamByName('ReturnValue').Value;
if Result = 'SUCCESS' then
...

just from head
