MySQL function doesn't return a value

Hi Experts
I have written the MySQL function below, and when I invoke it, the action grid reports 'OK'; but the results grid does not display nor does it report a value.

Here is the FN:
***
CREATE DEFINER=`mysql`@`%` FUNCTION `GetBOP`(pID bigint, gameid integer) RETURNS int(11)
    DETERMINISTIC
BEGIN
declare bop int;
set bop=0;
/*set @btgpos := 0;*/
set @pID := pID;
set @gameid := gameid;

SELECT myfield INTO bop from mytable where Playerid = @pID and gameid = @gameid;

/*SELECT @btgpos := `myfield` from mytable where Playerid = @pID and gameid = @gameid;*/

If bop > 9 then
   set bop = 10;
end if;
   
RETURN bop;
END
***
___
To execute - I run this:
select getBOP(8701,24091)

RESULTS: (In Action grid of MySQL Workbench)
Action - select getBOP(8701,24091)  Response - OK

No Results grid displays and no values displayed.

___
To test:  I execute this:
set @pID := 8701;
set @gameid := 24091;
SELECT myfield from mytable where Playerid = @pID and gameid = @gameid;

With this test I get
Result Grid -  Results - 8
Action grid - Action - 1 Row returned

It seems like the function is returning a NULL or boolean or ?? Not sure why I'm not getting a result.
As you can see by the function above, I've tried using @btgpos variable vs. declare variable. This causes Error 1415 (can't return a result..) so I am perhaps using it incorrectly.

I've written a very similar fn that returns numbers as expected and I can not see the difference at all. Only difference is it has only one parameter vs two.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

do you have the same issue when running the query/function on the mysql command line?
if no, the issue would be on the MySQL Workbench
if yes, the issue is on the function side;
please test and inform us about that.

also, I would recommend to have the parameter names renamed to avoid name clashes...
CREATE DEFINER=`mysql`@`%` FUNCTION `GetBOP`(p_pID bigint, p_gameid integer) RETURNS int(11)
    DETERMINISTIC
BEGIN
declare v_bop int;
set v_bop=0;

SELECT t.myfield INTO v_bop from mytable t where t.Playerid = p_pID and t.gameid = p_gameid;

If v_bop > 9 then
   set v_bop = 10;
end if;
    
RETURN (v_bop);

END

Try this:
CREATE DEFINER=`mysql`@`%` FUNCTION `GetBOP`(pID bigint, gameid integer) RETURNS int(11)
    DETERMINISTIC
BEGIN
declare bop int;
set bop=0;

SELECT myfield INTO bop from mytable where Playerid = pID and gameid = gameid;

If bop > 9 then
   set bop = 10;
end if;
    
RETURN (bop);

END

Hi Zberteoc ~ shoot sorry. Still getting just OK in action grid, no results grid.

Here is another possible clue.
This function ultimately will be called within a larger query as:

getbop(ThisTable.Pid,ThisTable.gid) AS Spot,

When I run the query with this line, it completes in 0.029 seconds and returns 'OK' in the action grid only. Without this line the query takes 3 seconds and returns >2000 records.
So this function also appears to stop the query from executing as well.

Thanks

Hi Guy;
It is working! I tested thru cmd line and got an error
ERRR 1172 (42000): Result consisted of more than one row.

Then I changed the parameter names, referenced the table and variable names as you suggested and it is working 100%.

Thank you so much!
