The previous examples demonstrate what happens when you pass value types by reference. You can also use the ref keyword to pass reference types.

    static void ChangeByReference(ref Product itemRef)
    {
        // The following line changes the address that is stored in   
        // parameter itemRef. Because itemRef is a ref parameter, the 
        // address that is stored in variable item in Main also is changed.
        itemRef = new Product("Stapler", 99999);

        // You can change the value of one of the properties of 
        // itemRef. The change happens to item in Main as well.
        itemRef.ItemID = 12345;
    }

Hi  homeshopper;

Try using the ref keyword in the call as shown below.

SetParameter(ref cmd.Parameters[ParmName], ParmValue);

Hi  homeshopper;

Try this to see if it resolves the problem.

var param = cmd.Parameters[ParmName];
SetParameter(ref param, ParmValue);

Thanks, That has cleared that problem.
Just now got to debug the rest of the code.
