An example for you.
set cmd = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
cmd.ActiveConnection = cnn `cnn is the name of my db connection
cmd.CommandText = "spInsertOrder" `name of my sp
cmd.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc `A const that = 4

`parameters are:
` 1) parameter name
` 2) variable type: 3=integer, 200=varchar, 6=money, 11=bit (boolean)
` 3) parameter type: 1=INPUT, 2=OUTPUT, 3=INPUT/OUTPUT
` 4) parameter length
` 5) value

cmd.Parameters.Append = cmd.CreateParameter("seller_company_id`",3,1,,sellingCompanyID)
cmd.Parameters.Append = cmd.CreateParameter("realm_id",3,1,,session("realmID"))
cmd.Parameters.Append = cmd.CreateParameter("cust_id",3,1,,custID)
cmd.Parameters.Append = cmd.CreateParameter("handling",6,1,,repZero(handling_charge))
cmd.Parameters.Append = cmd.CreateParameter("tax",6,1,,repZero(Request.Form("taxTotal")))
cmd.Parameters.Append = cmd.CreateParameter("pending_code",11,1,,pendingCode)
cmd.Parameters.Append = cmd.CreateParameter("order_id",200,1,50,newOrderID)
cmd.Parameters.Append = cmd.CreateParameter("errNum",3,3,,null)

errNum = cmd("errNum")
set cmd = nothing

bit when passing thru ASP is meerly an integer ...1 or 0...so you can use integer as your paramter data type...
