I would like to run the stored procedure but I dont need any data from it as its doing an update and some housekeeping.

how do i do that without having to create a reader etc.

normally i would do this:

   dtWords = New DataTable
        Dim connectionString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("Dictionary").ConnectionString

        Using conn As New SqlConnection(connectionString)
            Using cmd As New SqlCommand(StrProcName, conn)
                cmd.CommandTimeout = 0
                cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
                conn.Open()

                cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Client", StrClient)

                If OpShortDescCars.Checked = True Or OpShortDescBikes.Checked = True Or OpShortDescLcv.Checked = True Or OpShortDescOthers.Checked = True Then
                    cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@VCategory", StrVehCat)

                ElseIf OpShortDescCarsLcvOthers.Checked = True Or OpShortDescBikesQuads.Checked = True Then
                    cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@VCatSuper", StrVehCat)

                ElseIf OpShortDescAll.Checked = True Then
                    ' no params
                End If

                Dim reader As SqlDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
                dtWords.Load(reader)
            End Using
        End Using
        Return dtWords

try use ExecuteScalar? like:

cmd.CommandTimeout = 0
                cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
                conn.Open()

                '....

cmd.ExecuteScalar()

Will this do the job
    Public Sub CreateAllStrs()

        Dim StrProcName As String
        StrProcName = "usp_CreateStrStringsPlusTidyup"

        Dim connectionString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("Dictionary").ConnectionString

        Using conn As New SqlConnection(connectionString)
            Using cmd As New SqlCommand(StrProcName, conn)
                cmd.CommandTimeout = 0
                cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
                conn.Open()
                cmd.ExecuteReader()
            End Using
        End Using

    End Sub

    Public Sub CreateAllStrs()

        Dim StrProcName As String
        StrProcName = "usp_CreateStrStringsPlusTidyup"

        Dim connectionString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("Dictionary").ConnectionString

        Using conn As New SqlConnection(connectionString)
            Using cmd As New SqlCommand(StrProcName, conn)
                cmd.CommandTimeout = 0
                cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
                conn.Open()
                cmd.ExecuteScalar()
            End Using
        End Using
