I wrote COM DLL(test.dll)  using VC++ 6 to communicate with WAS.

If i invoke functions  in COM DLL ( test.dll) using Visual Basic application , No issues everything is working fine
if i invoke the same functions in MSSQL using Stored Procedure - not working.

In VB defining variables as String
in SQL defining varibales as Varchar

In COM DLL - function ( BSTR, BSTR , BSTR) - using BSTR and converting them internally char * and working , return type BSTR( converting Back). i am using W2A function to convert BSTR to Char *.

COM DLL is compiled with _MBCS in settings options.

Any Ideas ?

A year ago I had to call DLL functions from SQL Server ... now it seems that I was at the same point as your question seems to target ... fortunatly the article that helped me is still available ... ;-)

Try defining the string parameters as 'nvarchar' rather than 'varchar'.
