$table = "alabama";

$sql = "SELECT distinct zip FROM {$table} where zip is not null order by zip;";
$sql .= "SELECT distinct city FROM {$table} where city is not null order by city;";
$sql .= "SELECT distinct county FROM {$table} where county is not null order by county;";

$mysqli = new MySQLI('host','user','pass','db');
if ($mysqli->multi_query($sql)) {
       do {
        if ($result = $mysqli->store_result()) {
            while ($row = $result->fetch_row()) {
        if ($mysqli->more_results()) {
            echo ("next result");
    } while ($mysqli->next_result());

The above works great now the issue is using the same sql in a stored procedure (tested stored procedure works good in command line). If I replace the sql string as

$sql = "CALL {$table}_zip();";
$sql .= "CALL {$table}_city();";
$sql .= "CALL {$table}_county();";

then the above script does not give results.

I even tested with a single stored procedure call it it does not give results.

Any help is greatly appreciated
