I have a stored proc as attached.
How do I pass a parameter for XMLText?
I want to validate it to null. Basically I want that stored proc will read XMLText as null.
what should I do in ASP to pass that parameter?

Please help me.

Thanks a lot

ALTER PROC [dbo].[spCSW_UpdateFocusISINList]
	@FocusISINGroupCd	varchar(7)	
,	@ActionFlag		char(1)		
,	@XMLText		text	
,	@LoginDMSysId		varchar(40)	= null
,	@RefreshFlag		char(1)		= 'N'
as
set nocount on
 
declare @SMDBFlagIn	char(1)
,	@S3dFlagIn	char(1)
 
if @LoginDMSysId is null select @LoginDMSysId = current_user
 
if @RefreshFlag = 'Y' and @ActionFlag = 'A'
	delete tb_FOcusISINList where FocusISINGroupCd = @FocusISINGroupCd
 
if @XMLText is null return

Hi Neeraj

when I am trying the following

dim xmlText = null
.Parameters.Append(cmd.CreateParameter("@XMLText",adLongVarChar,adParamInput,len(xmlText),xmlText))

it is giving an error as
"parameter is improperly defined or insufficient information."
actually I think I am going wrong with
dim  xmlText=null and len(xmlText)
 Could you please correct the above syntax? It is very urgent for me.
Thanks a lot for your help

Understanding Web Applications

Without even knowing it, most of us are using web applications on a daily basis. Gmail and Yahoo email, Twitter, Facebook, and eBay are used by most of us daily—and they are web applications. We often confuse these web applications tools for websites.  So, what is the difference?

It is not throwing any error.
But it is not doing the action that is in the stored procedure.

thanks
