Hi Experts,

I know there's got to be a way to do this.  I'm builing a web app using ASP.NET 2.0, C#, and SQL server 2005.  All I was trying to do was get the int return value from the stored procedure, so I could use it in some sort of algorithm.  If anyone could give me an example of how this could be done I would appriciate it.  Here are samples of my stored procedure, and application code:

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[sp_PopSTArchive]
AS
SET ANSI_WARNINGS OFF
BEGIN

IF EXISTS (SELECT * FROM tbl_ArchiveBillingST WHERE BillDates = (SELECT TOP 1 BillDates
FROM vew_BillingSetType  ))

RETURN 6
ELSE

IF EXISTS (SELECT * FROM tbl_MergeExtnAccount WHERE (Account = ' ' OR AccountSupervisor = ' ' OR
      Dept = ' '))

RETURN 5
ELSE
      
      INSERT INTO tbl_ArchiveBillingST (Inst, NameOnDigitalDisplay, SetType,
      Bldg, Room, Jack, COR, COS, CoveragePath1, Extn, Account, AccountSupervisor, Dept, SetTypeCost,
      BillDates)
      SELECT Inst, NameOnDigitalDisplay, SetType,
      Bldg, Room, Jack, COR, COS, CoveragePath1, Extn, Account, AccountSupervisor, Dept, SetTypeCost,
      BillDates
      FROM  vew_BillingSetType
      
      INSERT INTO tbl_ArchiveBillingLI (Inst, Extn, Date, Time, Numberdialed, Location, Length, Cost, AuthCode, BillDates, Account)
      SELECT Inst, Extn, Date, Time, Numberdialed, Location, Length, Cost, AuthCode, BillDates, Account
      FROM vew_BillingLongDistanceI
      
      INSERT INTO tbl_ArchiveBillingLD (Inst, Extn, Date, Time, Numberdialed, Location, Length, Cost, AuthCode, BillDates, Account)
      SELECT Inst, Extn, Date, Time, Numberdialed, Location, Length, Cost, AuthCode, BillDates, Account
      FROM vew_BillingLongDistanceD
      
      INSERT INTO tbl_Payment (Account, SetTypeCost, InternationalCost, DomesticCost,
                                    TotalCost, BillDates)
SELECT DISTINCT Account, COALESCE(Expr1,0), COALESCE(Expr2,0), COALESCE(IntTotal,0), (COALESCE(Expr1,0) + COALESCE(Expr2,0) + COALESCE (IntTotal,0))AS TotalCost, BillDates
FROM vew_TotalPayment
      --DELETE tbl_AHECExtOwners, tbl_AHECLongDistanceD, tbl_AHECLongDistanceI
      --GO

      RETURN 0
      END


    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
       
    {
        SqlConnection objConn = new SqlConnection();
        objConn.ConnectionString = "Data Source=CCDADAPP01;Initial Catalog=PhoneBilling;Integrated Security=True;";
        objConn.Open();
        SqlCommand objCmd = new SqlCommand("sp_PopSTArchive", objConn);
        objCmd.CommandType = System.Data.CommandType.StoredProcedure;
        SqlParameter objpar = new SqlParameter("@RETURN_VALUE", SqlDbType.Int);
        objpar.Direction = ParameterDirection.ReturnValue;
        objCmd.Parameters.Add(objpar);
        objCmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
       

        //TextBox2.Text = objpar.ToString();
       

        //if (returnvalue == 6)
        //{
        //    TextBox2.Text = "look out";
        //}
        //else
        //{
        //    TextBox2.Text = "Hello";
        //}
        objConn.Close();

        //LinkButton1.Text = "Click to preview final bill";
    }



Thanks!!

this code seems to be reasonably ok what exactly are you having a problem with?



Are you meaning to use objpar.Value?

Cheers,

Yea,

All I was trying to do is get the objpar.Value, and use it in a situtaion kinda like the one I have commented out above:

if (objpar.Value == 6)
{
  Label1.Text = "This don't work
}
else

if {objpar.Value == 5) etc. etc.

Currently when I get the value for objpar; as I did in  //TextBox2.Text = objpar.ToString() it only return "@RETURN_VALUE" in the textbox.

Thanks again!

Try this to get the return value

string sResult = objCmd.Parameters["@RETURN_VALUE"].Value.ToString();

Then you can use Convert.ToInt32(sResult,10) to get as an Int value.

good luck

Funny this sure looked like he repeated my answer, to use the Value property.
