Stored procedure won't return to VB

VB 6.0; SQL Server 2000

A stored procedure runs perfectly well from SQL Query Analyzer. However, from VB, it won't return anything. If I comment the SQL totally from stored procedure and replace it with 'hello', it returns 'hello' to VB. The parameters are OK.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Can we see some code?  VB and T-SQL would be handy

I assume all you need to do is to add the following line to the procedure:

SET NOCOUNT ON       --- add this line
... here comes the rest of your proc code

found it: SET NOCOUNT ON

There were 2 sets of select statements.

>There were 2 sets of select statements.

if you have 2 different select statements, you have to use the ADO's Recordset method .NextRecordset which returns the second (next) recordset
