Hi,

I would think you need to use ADO.NET to do that.

Create a connection object, and a command object.
Set the command object's text to be the call to the Oracle function.
Open the connection object and execute the command object.

Best Regards,

David

We are using the OLEDB object not oracle client. We did what you are describing but it is throwing an exception. We read that it might work  if we use the oracle client.

Nevertheless, we have decided to embed the function in a stored procedure to get it to work. Thanks for your help
