Your StoreProcedure excepts only one parameter  @Drug varchar(1000)

so the storeprocedure call will be

exec [dbo].[FetchReport1Graph] '100'

Open in new window


may be you are using it like this

exec [dbo].[FetchReport1Graph] '100','100'

Open in new window


which gives following error

Msg 8144, Level 16, State 2, Procedure FetchReport1Graph, Line 0
Procedure or function FetchReport1Graph has too many arguments specified.

you can use it

exec [dbo].[FetchReport1Graph] '100,200'

Open in new window
