I think something might have changed in the way VBS is interpreted by WSH or ???

The line in the question title
.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@FirstName", adVarChar, adParamInput, 255)
bombs with the error "arguments of the wrong type, out of range or are in conflict with each other"

Any ideas???  Thanks,

What makes you believe this to be the case?

Have you upgraded your operating system, or version of Windows Scripting Host?

Or has the database structure changed & your parameter data type now does not match the database column?

BFN,

It used to run before I started working here (supposedly).  It doesn't work now and no modifications I make to it prevent the error from occuring.  That's why I suspect the WSH change.  It matches my database column.  I made a table with 1 column and edited the stored proc to have only one parameter.

Which version of WSH are you now using, and which version where you using prior to your current location?

How can I tell what version of WSH I'm using?   I have no info about the history.

Replace your code with this:

.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("FirstName", adVarChar, adParamInput, 255,variable1)

WSH (or whatever is handling this) won't evaluate the enums.  I used .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("FirstName", 200, 3, 255) and it worked.  I went with the syntax suggestion because it was a syntax problem.  Thanks both of you for your help.

Odd it worked before, and now it doesn't, in any respect.
