Sybase 12.5 ASE stored procedure doesn't complete when executed by ADO

Last Modified: 2010-04-17

I have a stored procedure that runs fine while executing it from SQL Advantage.
The procedure runs a 'select count' on a (part of a) large table and stores the result in a #tmp table.
The results from the #tmp table are row by row compared to a second table (by a cursor);  the result of each cursor fetch is passed to a second stored procedure which updates the second table.

The problem occurs when this procedure is executed by an ADO procedure in Visual Basic. The first part of the procedure is executed, but the part with the cursor seems to be passed over..

No problems with other procedures and ADO

I'm using ADO 2.7, Sybase OLEDB provider version and Sybase 12.5.03 ASE
