SQLExecDirectA fails sometimes.

Hi All,
        I'm using SQLExecDirectA to to execute a stored procedure. It works many times but i do often get below error.
@ .\src\db\odbc\Connection.cpp:343   Detail: -1 { Record# 1 Error# 3922 State [42000] - Syntax error or access violation  ODBC Diagnostics: Row# 1 Line# 1 Message State [1] Message Severity [16] Procedure [sp_bindsession] Server [HOPRIFDBSHSQL2Q]  || Record# 2 Error# 3922 State [42000] - Syntax error or access violation  } )

Please let me know why it is failing only some times. From the web, state 42000 mean, Syntax error or access violation...really confused since the same code work fine many times

Now i will explain the the call is made from our project.
We are having a legacy code(VC++, one of our business component) which talks to the database to fetch/store data.  We have our web application(asp.net 1.1 & C#) . The legacy code is hosted in our web server(IIS).

Please let me know if u need more details....and please let me know any kind of information which will help in resolving this.

It probably relates to the commands in the SP.
From the error message, it appears that
is being called.  There are lots of way that can fail, including if a previous/concurrent call is already running and something that the SP does locks a table.

What I'd do is try the SQLExecDirect with a simple SP.  If that never fails, try adding back parts of the current SP until you can get a failure.  The problem will be related to that last port of the SP that you moist recently added.

If you cannot access or change the SP, then you may need to find ways to avoid having multiple processes access it concurrently.

   Since it is a web applications, there will be multiple requests trying to access this method. Can you please explain a little the best way to avoid this mulitple process accessing it ?

As you said i cannot access or change the SP and also adding back parts will take long time since there are various code paths to this method.
