Hi,

Environment:
  - Delphi 5 Enterprise Edition on Windows XP machines.
  - SQL Server 2000 (on Windows 2000).



I wonder if there is a way to explicitly set the value of a Stored Procedure Parameter to a NULL (NIL) Value from code.

So it should be something like :
spMyStoredProc.Parameters.ParamByName('Param1').Value := nil; // Does not compile !!

Then I get compilation-error : incompatible type Variant and Pointer.

Anybody any idea how to solve/work around this problem ?

Best regards,

The Mayor.

Does'nt seem to work.

BUT !!!!!

I found a solution myself :

spMyStoredProc.Parameters.ParamByName('Param1').Value := UnAssigned;

Simple as that !!

Is it for you OK if I ask EE to refund my points ?

I tried following possibilities :

spMyStoredProc.Parameters.ParamByName('Param1').Value := varNull; //-> NOK
spMyStoredProc.Parameters.ParamByName('Param1').Value := varEmpty; // -> NOK
spMyStoredProc.Parameters.ParamByName('Param1').Value := UnAssigned; // -> OK !

So, the only working possibility in my case is to use 'UnAssigned'.
