Calling AS400 Stored Procedure from PHP with ODBC

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.

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?

iSeries is V5R4
PHP 5.3.1

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...

Got it working a while ago and thought I'd give an update to help others with the same issue.

The partial code snippet shows the basic connection and how to read the returned data.

I had to use the odbc_result function to read to returned data.




$sql='CALL GETSTORES('.$a.')';
$result = odbc_exec($con, $sql);
echo"<select name=\"sel_store\" id=\"sel_store\" onchange=\"javascript:unhide_style()\">";
      echo"<option  value=\" - Select - \"> - Select - </option>";
      while (odbc_fetch_row($result))
      {
         $sel_string = trim(odbc_result($result,"ABNAME")).", ".trim(odbc_result($result,"ABADDR1")).", ".trim(odbc_result($result,"ABCITY")).", ".trim(odbc_result($result,"ABSTATE"));
         echo"<option value=\"".trim(odbc_result($result,"STORE"))."\">".$sel_string."</option>";
      }
      echo "</select></font></form>";
