I have seen the examples on returning parameters in stored  procedures that use the OUTPUT value.  I am unclear on the syntax however for returning the actual varchar value that is returned by the stored procedure.  It seems the examples return a value of 0 or 1.  How can I call the stored procedure with it's three paramaters and return the varchar value that is returned when the stored procedure is ran into a variable?  I thought using the executescalar method would accomplish this but it does not seem to be working.  Does anyone have any sample code I can look at?  Please advise.
