Trouble with datasets when updating stored procedures with output parms.

I created the attached stored procedure for self learning and it has 4 output parms.

@NewOrderLine int OUTPUT ,
      @ReturnCode int OUTPUT,
      @ReturnMessage varchar(255) OUTPUT,
      @RowsChanged int OUTPUT

When I add a dataset to the WinForms project and choose option to build strongly typed data set over the stored procedure I get the warning shown in the attached word document.

My questions is can I write the SP to avoid this problem and still have output parms?
Or how can I write the C# code to use the generated dataset?  (I want to use the strongly typed set, I do not want to use a weakly defined dataset.)
 
My code is as follows.
NW_orderDetailsDataSetTableAdapters.OrderDetailSelectByOrderTableAdapter ta = new OrderDetailSelectByOrderTableAdapter();

NW_orderDetailsDataSet.OrderDetailSelectByOrderDataTable dsOrders = new NW_orderDetailsDataSet.OrderDetailSelectByOrderDataTable();

            ta.Fill(dsOrders, 10250);
            foreach (var dsOrder in dsOrders)
            {
                Debug.WriteLine(dsOrder.Quantity.ToString());
                dsOrder.Quantity += 1;
            }
            try
            {
                //this code throws the exeception that the output parms are not defined.
                int update = ta.Update(dsOrders);
                Debug.WriteLine(update.ToString());
            }
            catch (Exception e1)
            {
                MessageBox.Show(e1.ToString());
                Debug.WriteLine(e1.ToString());
                throw;
            }

Because they are output parameters, you can assign them values of NULL

@NewOrderline int = NULL OUTPUT

But the warning is just telling you that the values in the DataSet will not be used in the calls.

Set default values for the OUTPUT parameters and see how it goes for you.

Thank you.  I forget that OTUPUT to Sequel means in and out.  Unlike Oracle and Sybase.
