calling a stored procedure with argument

hello,

I'm calling my stored procedure and the fact having the first field as an incremental value is causing me trouble.

first field is an INT and setup as IDENTITY. However, in the stored procedure I must specify it and I"m not passing any values to it but then I get an error message as Error converting data type varchar to int.  since my 2nd field being passed to SP is varchar. What is the right approach here?

here is the code:

CREATE PROCEDURE 
add_node (
			@p0 int, 
			@p1  varchar(35), 
			@p2  int, 
			@p3  int, 
			@p4  bit, 
			@p5  varchar(100) 
) as

insert into test(category_Id, name, lft, rgt, visible, description)
values(@p0, @p1, @p2, @p3, @p4, @p5)
go
add_node 'test', 200, 300, 0 ,'some info here ...'   
go
select * from test 

Open in new window


Thanks!

You are passing string in line 14. 'Test' for @p0 which is int?

Why must you pass the ID at all?  If it is an identity, it should auto increment.

Eliminate the @p0 param in the sproc def and change your insert statement to:

insert into test(name, lft, rgt, visible, description)
values(@p1, @p2, @p3, @p4, @p5)

yawkey is correct.

Then you return the id to your program via:

select scope_identity()
