Hi,

I've go this method:

public function getTables($procname,$parameter) {
      //see : http://www.php.net/manual/en/pdo.prepared-statements.php example #10 and #11
      $vars = explode(",", $parameter);
      $num = count($vars);
      //create holders for calls
      for ($i = 0; $i <= $num; $i++) {
         $holder.="?";
         if ($i != $num)
         {
            $holder.=",";
         }
      }
      $stmt = DBO::prepare("EXECUTE " . $procname . " " . $holder);
      // TODO build bind, may need to change type for strings and ints and others
      // perhaps look to put into dbcalls
      for ($i = 0; $i <= $num; $i++) {
         $stmt->bindParam($i + 1, $vars[$i], PDO::PARAM_STR | PDO::PARAM_INPUT_OUTPUT, PDO::ERRMODE_WARNING, 4000);
      }

// call the stored procedure
      try
      {
        $stmt->execute();
      } catch (PDOException $e)
      {

         //var_dump($e);
      }
      $data = ($stmt->fetchAll(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC));
      $stmt->closeCursor();
      return $data;
   }

Open in new window


It dynamically extracts data from a database, It has one problem though, it treats the id columns it finds as floats as opposed to integers, ie 2345 comes back a 2345.0, ideally the call should detect that the column is a id and display it as so. Does anyone know how how this could be done?

It could be done by post processing the data, but I would like to prevent that.

that is equivalent to decimal(18,0), since not storing any scale, I don't see why this would be chosen as the datatype over int, but thats beyond the case.

It is coming back with .0 because of the datatype. You could cast or convert the return value before returning it so that it displays the way you want, or you could use intval php function to convert it to an integer before displaying it.

Unfortunately I have now way of knowing what the data type of each field is going to be before the procedure is called,  but this will not be a problem in most cases as the data will be imported into a spreadsheet.

The id fields show up on the database as integers, will need to ask the db owner why they us this instead if an integer.

Have got around the problem using casting.
