ASP and  Pervasive stored procedures

I have a classic ASP web app that is connecting to a Pervasive 8.7 database.  I have no issues querying the database with straight SQL statements, however, I am cutting my teeth when it comes to using Stored Procedures in Pervasive.  

Here is my connect string:

strConnectSP = "Driver={Pervasive ODBC Client Interface};ServerName=server.domain.com;dbq=DBNAME;UID=*****;PWD=**********;"

'-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
As a test, I thought that I'd get a recordset from a small table with 11 records.
The following stored proc works fine:

CREATE PROCEDURE up_get_MESSAGE_QUEUE()
RETURNS(CMPNY CHAR(3));  
BEGIN
  select CMPNY from MESSAGE_QUEUE;
END;

It returns 11 records.

'-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
However, trying to get a count of the records in that same table is proving to be a bit of a challenge.
When coding the stored proc like this:

CREATE PROCEDURE up_get_MESSAGE_QUEUE()
AS BEGIN
  select count(*) as RecCount from MESSAGE_QUEUE;
END;

The browser returns:

ADODB.Recordset error '800a0e78'

Operation is not allowed when the object is closed.

/test/index.asp, line 271


'-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Also, when I code the stored proc as such:

CREATE PROCEDURE up_get_MESSAGE_QUEUE(out :outval INTEGER)
AS BEGIN
  select count(*) INTO :outval from MESSAGE_QUEUE;
END;

The browser returns:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[Pervasive][ODBC Client Interface][LNA][Pervasive][ODBC Engine Interface]Error in procedure argument 1.

/futurereqs/test/index.asp, line 269


'-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
sub TestSP()
  server.ScriptTimeout = 240
  dim adoConn
  dim strProc
  dim oRS

  set adoConn = server.CreateObject("ADODB.CONNECTION")
  adoConn.Open strConnectSP
  set oRS = server.CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")
 
  strProc = "CALL up_get_MESSAGE_QUEUE();"
  'set oRS = adoConn.execute(strProc)
  oRS.open strProc, adoConn                            ' <-----  line 269
      
  if not oRS.bof and not oRS.eof then                  ' <-----  line 271
    response.write "[" & oRS("RecCount") & "]"          
    'BuildHTMLTable oRS
  end if

  oRS.close
  set oRS = nothing
  adoConn.close
  set adoConn = nothing      
      
end sub

I got it to work:

CREATE PROCEDURE up_get_MESSAGE_QUEUE()
RETURNS(RecCount integer);
BEGIN
  select count(*) from MESSAGE_QUEUE;
END;

Whenever returning a recordset, you must use the RETURNS clause.
