Stored Procedures that return a value

I want to Add values into a table and return the Identity. Please see my SP and VB code below.

--------------------------------SP---------------------------------------------

CREATE PROCEDURE Add_Project
                        (
                        @sProjectName as varchar(100)
                        @dStartDate as datetime
                        )
AS
INSERT Project
            (
            sProjectName
            dStartDate
            )
            VALUES
            (
            @sProjectName
            @dStartDate
            )
return SCOPE_IDENTITY()
GO

----------------------------------------VB6---------------------------------------------------------
Dim oconn As New ADODB.Connection
Dim ocmd As New ADODB.Command

   
oconn.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Password=4dm1n;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Initial Catalog=Audit_Master;Data Source=DICK-Nb"
   
    oconn.CursorLocation = adUseClient
   
    oconn.Open
    With ocmd
        .CommandText = "Add_Project"
        .CommandTimeout = 300
        .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
        .ActiveConnection = oconn
        .Parameters.Append ocmd.CreateParameter("sProjectName", adVarChar, adParamInput, 100, " & Text2.Text & ")
        .Parameters.Append ocmd.CreateParameter("RETURN_VALUE", adInteger, adParamReturnValue, , Null)
    End With
   
    ocmd.Execute
   
    Debug.Print ocmd.Parameters(0).Value
   
    rst.Close
    oconn.Close
