I am looking for a sample vb script that executes a stored scalar function in SQL Server and returns the value into a variable in the calling vb script.  The Sql function returns a varchar and needs to be put in string.

My favorite stored scalar function is GetDate(), but you can use your own.

dim rs
dim cn
dim sSQL
dim sResult

set cn = createobject("ADODB.Connection")
cn.ConnectionString = MyconnectionString
cn.Open

set rs = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")

sSQL = "Select GetDate()"

rs.Open sSQL, cn

sResult = rs.Fields(0).Value
