Hi,
   I have a stored procedure to write in DB2 and was planning to bring the result as result set, using a cursor with return to the caller.
  My colleague was suggesting that i write it with a combination of out parameters and result sets.
  Is it possible to have both result set and out parameters to contain in one stored procedure?

Hi pvsbandi,

Sure.  You can do both.  If you'll explain your project a bit perhaps we can suggest a reasonable solution.

Hi Kent,

   Basically, there are different sections on my report. Some of the sections have only 1 value at any time.
  But there are some other sections, which can have repeating details.
  So, my lead is asking me to have the one -one value fields as OUT parameters and the ones, which might repeat, to have as the result sets.

That's actually a very rational way to do that.  The returned parameters become the items that you need to access first or randomly (plug into headers, etc.) and the returned table is the row data.

Depending on your needs, you might also use a global temporary table, particularly if you need to make multiple queries against the data or pass the results to another stored procedure.

I'm not usually a fan of global temporary tables, but they do have their uses.
