VBA and Oracle Stored Procedure dbms.put_line capture task:

I have stored procedures that I can call using a vba module.
I can append the parameters and it all works quite nicely.

The stored procedures are used in other places as well,so I don't want to change
if I don't absolutely have to.

My Question:

The Oracle proc  has informational output displays dbms.put_line "stuff"  
that I would like to capture in my vba function.

I know how to execute the stored_procedure and retrieve the cursor if I want too.

How do I capture the oracle output at the end?

(btw:  This particular procedure does not return a cursor or result set.)

Since I can test the err.description and get the Oracle Error Message, I'm
guessing, that I can get the dbms.put_line output too?

Can I capture it without changeing the Oracle side of things?

If so, can some provide a sample please?

thank you, bangel

"dbms_output.put_line" can be retrieved by using dbms_output.get_line
