I have a stored procedure GETSTORES(#####) which requires a five digit account number and returns all stores for that account.  I need to call that stored procedure from php using an ODBC connection.  I can connect to the 400 and query directly but want to use the stored procedure to cut down on traffic.

I can't seem to find anything that works.

I can't seem to find anything that works.

What goes wrong? Is there an error message?

What platform is PHP running on? What i5/OS version is running?

Can you show us a sample of your PHP coding?

I'm really at the point of trying to figure out how to construct the command in php.  I've found examples like:
$result=runStoredProc("exec GETSTORES(1550)");  

where GETSTORES(#) is the name of my stored procedure.  

runStoredProc is not recognized.

I'm just not sure how to do it...
