Trying to execute a stored procedure but the only data returned is an integer and it is always 0 false? The stored proc works in management studio when executed but it doesn't seem to work in the windows form. How do I use a stored procedure in a windows form to return data not an integer.

string param1 = textBox1.Text;
            string param2 = comboBox1.Text;

           
            //Call to the Stored procedure this reutrns a value (0)
            var y = dc.GetInventoryByAnyValue(param1, param2);

           

                       

           
           //Code I've been using to test the rest of the program
           
            var q = (from item in dc.GetTable<MainInventory>()
                    where item.InventoryNumber.Contains(param1)                    
                     select new InventoryListResult
                     {
                                                   AWNum = item.AWInvNum ,
                                                   InvNum =item.InventoryNumber,
                                                   InvLocation = item.InventoryLocation,
                                                   Available = Convert.ToInt32(item.Available),
                                                   _upc = item.UPC,
                                                   _sku = item.SKU,
                                                   Image1 = item.ImageURL1,
                                                   Image2 = item.ImageURL2}).ToList<InventoryListResult>();



//Stored Procedure
USE [INVENTORY]
GO
/****** Object:  StoredProcedure [dbo].[GetInventoryByAnyValue]    Script Date: 09/14/2010 12:36:47 ******/
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[GetInventoryByAnyValue] @search varchar (75) , @category varchar(50)
AS
SET NOCOUNT ON

DECLARE @str nvarchar(2255)

SELECT @str = 'SELECT * ' + 'FROM MainInventory WHERE ' + @category + ' LIKE @search'

set @search = '%'+@search+'%'

EXEC sp_executesql @str, N'@search varchar(50)', @search

procedures always return a number when executed.can you post the GetInventoryByAnyValue method. What do you excpet the proc to return a table ? if so then you should call Executereader

Added the SQLcommand like both of you suggested. now recieve error message on the line---dataGridView2.DataSource = objCmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

SQLEXCEPTION was Unhandled
Invalid column name 'InventoryNumber'.
Invalid column name 'AWInvNum'.
Invalid column name 'InventoryNumber'.
Invalid column name 'Available'.
Invalid column name 'InventoryLocation'.
Invalid column name 'ImageURL1'.



Added code---

string param1 = textBox1.Text;
            string param2 = comboBox1.Text;

            SqlConnection objConn = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection();
            objConn.ConnectionString = "server=SHPPING_COREI7\\SQLEXPRESS; Database=INVENTORY; Trusted_Connection=True;";

            SqlCommand objCmd = new SqlCommand("GetInventoryByAnyValue", objConn);
           

           
            objCmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
            objCmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@search", param1);
            objCmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@category", param2);

            objConn.Open();
            dataGridView2.DataSource = objCmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
            objConn.Close();

is your proc running independently ? looks like you have some error in that. also change your code as below
string param1 = textBox1.Text;
            string param2 = comboBox1.Text;

            SqlConnection objConn = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection();
            objConn.ConnectionString = "server=SHPPING_COREI7\\SQLEXPRESS; Database=INVENTORY; Trusted_Connection=True;";

            SqlCommand objCmd = new SqlCommand("GetInventoryByAnyValue", objConn);
            

            
            objCmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
            objCmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@search", param1);
            objCmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@category", param2);

            objConn.Open();

SqlDataAdapter adp = new SqlDataAdapter(objCmd);
            DataTable table = new DataTable();
            adp.Fill(table);
            dataGridView2.DataSource = table;
            objConn.Close();

Open in new window

What I suspect is cos you're binding the results to DataGridView you may have defined the binding against the DataReader. The resultset returned by SQLReader may not contain required columns as defined in the DataGridView binding.

This is not fair as I suggest you to use SQLCommand and others get the points?

You may want to double check that, it looks like you got points.

Yes I've got Assisted Points but the idea to use SQLCommand was mine and I believe I deserve more points unless the Author thinks otherwise.
