Loop question

I need to return only one column from my stored procedure..


getinfo has this; Select  A,B,C,D..from table

But I need only to get C from the select to return.

what is the code to get it...

Im using

 while not dr.read()
label1.text =dr("C")

end while

it bypasses the line and not read it.

Not sure I understand your question.

My select in my store proc has several fields.
can I use the same sp to return just 1 column.
if col 1 is Id, col2 is name, col 3 is address.
can i return just the name? ignore other fields.
Or should I create a new sp ust to return the name?
There are multiple options

1) Leave the SP as it is and just use the requirement column on client side, ignoring extra columns.

2) Add a parameter to SP so that it returns a different resultset depending on this parameter value.

3) Add another SP.

I chose option 3. Simpler!
