Error passing Arrays to Function

Posted on 2014-11-26

I'm trying to write a generic stored procedure in vba and pass in parameters as variables

Code snippet:
Public Function RunSP(StoredProcedureName As String, ParamString() As String, DataType() As DataTypeEnum, ParamValue() As Variant)


In the immediate window I have:
? runsp "ElementInRange",("Element","Amount","Material"),(18,3,18),("Cr",22,"2205")

I put the breakpoint on the Function declaration line

It compiles correctly but when I attempt to run it I get
Compile Error  Expected: )  (closing parenthesis)

no clue as to where the missing parenthesis belongs

Try this.
? runsp "ElementInRange",Array("Element","Amount","Material"),Array(18,3,18),Array("Cr",22,"2205")

Open in new window

Hy Rey,
?runsp("ElementInRange",Array("Element","Amount","Material"),Array(18,3,18),Array("Cr",22,"2205"))

returns: Type mismatch: array or user-defined type expected

Try changing the function declaration to this.
Public Function RunSP(StoredProcedureName As String, ParamString As Variant, DataType As Variant, ParamValue As Variant)

Open in new window

Also, to test use a small sub - somethings you can't do in the Immediate Wndow.

Actually just realised that enclosing the arguments in brackets, as suggested by Rey, will work.

Public Function RunSP(StoredProcedureName As String, ParamString As Variant, DataType As Variant, ParamValue As Variant)


then use

?runsp("ElementInRange",Array("Element","Amount","Material"),Array(18,3,18),Array("Cr,22,2205"))

?runsp("ElementInRange",Array("Element","Amount","Material"),Array(18,3,18),Array("Cr",22,"2205")) 

Open in new window

and
?runsp("ElementInRange",Array("Element","Amount","Material"),Array(18,3,18),Array("Cr,22,2205"))

Open in new window



Both work

It's now hanging up here:
ADOCmd.Parameters(ParamString(0)).Value = ParamValue(0)

Open in new window



Error 3421 (Application uses a value of the wrong type for the current operation.)
