iscivanomar,

It's been awhile, but this should work for you:

CREATE PROCEDURE my_proc
            @param1 varchar(10),
            @param2 int
:
:
:
:
Public Shared Function my_function(ByVal myVB_Param As String) As String

    'create connection
    Using cnSQL As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection("MyConnectionString")
        Using cmdSP As New SqlCommand("my_proc", cnSQL)
            cmdSP.CommandType = System.Data.CommandType.StoredProcedure

            'declare and add  parameter
            cmdSP.Parameters.Add("@param1", System.Data.SqlDbType.NVarChar, 50).Value = "ABC"
            cmdSP.Parameters.Add("@param2", System.Data.SqlDbType.Integer, 0).Value = 0

            Dim dtTable As New DataTable

            'execute command
            Try
                cnSQL.Open()
                dtTable.Load(cmdSP.ExecuteReader())
                cnSQL.Close()
            Catch ex As SqlException
                'do something here
            End Try

            'return string
            Return dtTable.Rows(0)(0)
        End Using
    End Using

End Function

Best regards,

Absolutely the easiest way to work with VB6 and Stored Procedures is the ADO Stored Procedure Add-IN from Microsoft.  This Add-In integrates with the VB6 IDE and all you have to do is select the server and stored procedure and it writes all of the code for you.  

Although you can't get it from Microsoft anymore, I did manage to find it for you at:

Just click the download link and install as per instructions.

After you see how easy this is, you can then get a little bit more advanced.
This link shows you how to customize the add-in for you own purposes.  I remember creating server specific custom add-ins using this method and it saved me hundreds of hours of coding over the years.
