How would you return the values when calling a Sybase stored procedure call ?

I am developing an Access mdb application using Access as the front end and I call a sybased stored procedure named sp3D_GetListOfDocuments. My code is the Attach Code Snippet.

How would you modify this code to execute the stored procedure that returns
a result set which is comprised of the following 3 columns:
1) MailID
2) NoOfPages
3) NoOfAttributes
This stored procedure does not require any parameters.

My goal is to load the result set records by APPENDING THEM into the table tblNameAddressMod.  

In the following Attach Code Snippet, the table tblNameAddressMod has the same 3 fields:

1) MailID
2) NoOfPages
3) NoOfAttributes

For Example, the result set could have the following values:
------------------------------------------------------------------------

MailID                               NoOfPages                          NoOfAttributes
-----------------                 ----------------                       -------------------
200707091208                1                                           3
200707091235                1                                           3
200707091356                1                                           3

Private Sub Command9_Click()

Dim com As ADODB.Command

Dim recNameAdress As ADODB.Recordset

Dim cmd As ADODB.Command

Dim oConn

Dim strMailID As String

Dim strNoOfPages As String

Dim strNoOfAttributes As String
 

DoCmd.Hourglass True

On Error Resume Next

Set oConn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

oConn.Open "DSN=N_DIG_MAIL;" & _

 "Uid=PC;" & _

 "Pwd=po"

 

Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset

Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset
 

rst.Open "SELECT MailID FROM tblNameAddressMod", CurrentProject.Connection
 

Set cmd = New ADODB.Command

With cmd

    .ActiveConnection = oConn

    .CommandType = adCmdText

    .CommandText = "exec sp3D_GetListOfDocuments"

    Set recNameAdress = .Execute

End With

 

strMailID = recNameAdress("MailID")

strNoOfPages = Nz(recNameAdress("NoOfPages"), " ")

strNoOfAttributes = Nz(recNameAdress("NoOfAttributes"), " ")
 

CurrentProject.Connection.Execute "INSERT INTO tblNameAddress Set MailID ='" & Replace(strMailID, "'", "''") & "', " & _

"NoOfPages ='" & strNoOfPages & "', NoOfAttributes ='" & strNoOfAttributes & "    "
 

recNameAdress.Close

Hi Zimmer9

I think you were almost there!

You can directly execute a stored procedure (SP) using ADO with MS SQL (I don't have Sybase).

You did not specify the data types of the columns returned. I would have thought that the 2nd and 3rd one were numeric. You need to watch out for conversion problems.

While your approach to build a SQL Insert statement is valid, I prefer to use a recordset.

Hope that helps

Private Sub test()

   Dim oConn As New ADODB.Connection

   Dim oCmd As New ADODB.Command

   Dim recSP As New ADODB.Recordset

   Dim recMod As New ADODB.Recordset

    

   DoCmd.Hourglass True

   On Error Resume Next

   

   'Prepare command object with SP

   oConn.ConnectionString = "DSN=N_DIG_MAIL;Uid=PC;Pwd=po"

   With oCmd

       .ActiveConnection = oConn

       .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc

       .CommandText = "sp3D_GetListOfDocuments"

   End With

       

   'Open command object - executes SP

   recSP.Open oCmd

   If recSP.EOF Then

      'Handle error...

      Exit Sub

   End If

   

   'Open local dataset

   recMod.Open "tblNameAddressMod", CurrentProject.Connection, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockOptimistic, adCmdTable

   

   'Loop through records retrieved from SP

   Do While Not recSP.EOF

      'Copy data from SP output into new local record

      recMod.AddNew

      recMod!MailID = recSP!MailID

      recMod!NoOfPages = Nz(recSP!NoOfPages, " ")

      recMod!NoOfAttributes = Nz(recSP!NoOfAttributes, " ")

      recMod.Update

      'Advance cursor to next row

      recSP.MoveNext

   Loop

   recSP.Close

   recMod.Close

   Set recSP = Nothing

   Set recMod = Nothing

   DoCmd.Hourglass False

End Sub

I am a user who needs to access a Sybase database and call a stored procedures exposed to me to get information as a Sybase result set. I don't have any choice in the matter.

Can anyone confirm whether or not the solution above proposed by Felix should work as is  
using ADO with Sybase ? I have tried implementing it and as I step throught the execution I get to the following line in which the recordset is opened and the EOF is reached immediatately and the subroutine exits.

'Open command object - executes SP
   recSP.Open oCmd
   If recSP.EOF Then
      'Handle error...
      Exit Sub
   End If


thanks,

Hi Zimmer9

I just re-checked my code, and I think I forgot to open the connection. Try to add these 2 lines

10a   oConn.Provider = "ASEOLEDB"
11a   oConn.Open

Let me know how you go

Where is the linkage between the result set from the execution of stored procedure sp3D_GetListOfDocuments             and the record set recSP ?

By the way, I use ODBC with DataDirect 4.0 Sybase Wire Protocol driver.

Don't I need a .Execute line in the following With/End With ?

With oCmd
       .ActiveConnection = oConn
       .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
       .CommandText = "sp3D_GetListOfDocuments"
End With

Hi Zimmer9

There are two types of commands you can have with ADO,
1) use Execute to run an Action query (Insert/Update/Delete)
2) use Recordset.Open to run a Select query that returns rows of data

Did you try the code with the modification I sent?

I am not sure what DataDirect 4 for Sybase is and does... I gound some references on the Sybase site that uses "ASEOLEDB" - what appears to be a specific OLEDB provider for Sybase. Not sure where ODBC fits in, but if you are using it, I would think that your remote data is already accessible via a linked table.

Good luck
