Calling SQL 2005 Stored Procedure from Classic ASP

The following code is generating an error (Arguments are of the wrong type, are out of acceptable range, or are in conflict with one another) on cmd.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

set objConn = server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objConn.Open objDBConn
Set cmd = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
   cmd.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
   cmd.ActiveConnection =objConn
   cmd.CommandText = "dbo.sp_User"   
strEmail = Trim(Request("strEmail"))
cmd.Parameters.Append cmd.CreateParameter("@Email",adWChar, 1)
cmd("@Email") = strEmail
set objRS = cmd.Execute
if not objRS.EOF then
	arrUser = objRS.GetRows()
	strUserUbound = UBound(arrUser,2)
end if
set objRS = nothing

Did you define adCmdStoredProc?  The definition is in (which you can download from if you don't already have it).

This should also work:

Thanks, mkosbie.  Now I'm getting this:
Parameter object is improperly defined. Inconsistent or incomplete information was provided.

on this line:
cmd.Parameters.Append cmd.CreateParameter("@Email",adWChar, 1)

Any thoughts?

Nevermind, I just need to do this:
cmd.Parameters.Append cmd.CreateParameter("@Email",adVarWChar,adParamInput,100)
