ASP.NET with sql 2k

I have a sql server stored procedure which returns a resultset and also has out params. I want to execute this SP from .Net. But I have a choice of using ExecuteReader method or ExecuteNonQuery method. If I execute with ExecuteReader method I get resultset only. If I execute with ExecuteNonQuery method, I get out param values.
 
Does anyone know how to execute SP only once and get resultset and out param values?

Your help as before is much appreciated.

Regards
Wayne

Hi Wayne29,

You can get the output parameters, however you can only do so after you have closed the datareader!

Wayne29,

If you really need them first, consider making the stored procedure return mutiple resultsets, using

Select @OutputParam1,@OutputParam2

Select ...... your existing statement

You can then use read the datareader for the first resultset to get the "output" parameters and then use datareader.nextresult() to advance the datareader to the second resultset for the other records.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for reply.

My Question is, I should be able to get RESULTSET (interms of reader / dataset anything is OK) along with OUT values from SP.

If possible, can i have pseudo code / code snippet.

Thanks

Wayne29,

        Dim cn As SqlClient.SqlConnection = New SqlClient.SqlConnection("A Connection String")
        cn.Open()
        Dim sc As SqlClient.SqlCommand = New SqlClient.SqlCommand
        Dim dr As SqlClient.SqlDataReader
        Dim result As String
        With sc
            .Connection = cn
            .CommandText = "Test"
            .CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            .Parameters.Add("@Value", SqlDbType.Int).Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
            dr = .ExecuteReader()
            MsgBox(.Parameters("@Value").Value)
            With dr
                While .Read
                    result &= .Item(1)
                End While
                MsgBox(sc.Parameters("@Value").Value)
                .Close()
                MsgBox(sc.Parameters("@Value").Value)
            End With
        End With
        MsgBox(result)

This snippet shows when the output parameter gets returned, you can see when you run it (replacing the connectionstring, sp name, parameter etc for your situation). That the msgbox comes up empty until the dataread has been closed.

As this was a quick snippet in vb.net, you may need to replace the msgbox calls or debug it to see this.
