README Execute stored procedure (using ODBC CALL syntax) and process return codes and output parameters (OLE DB)


Updated: 17 July 2006
This example shows processing a rowset, a return code, and an output parameter. This sample is not supported on IA64.

Scenario

For more information on this sample, see Execute stored procedure (using ODBC CALL syntax) and process return codes and output parameters (OLE DB) in Books Online.

Languages

This sample uses Transact-SQL and Visual C++.

Prerequisites

Before running this sample, make sure the following software is installed:
  • SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2005 Express Edition (SQL Server Express) including Database Engine. You can download SQL Server Express from the Microsoft Download Center.
  • The AdventureWorks database which is included with SQL Server 2005, and is also available at the Microsoft SQL Server Developer Center.
  • The SQL Server 2005 Database Engine samples. These samples are included with SQL Server 2005. You can download the latest version of the samples at the Microsoft SQL Server Developer Center.
  • .NET Framework SDK 2.0 or Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. You can obtain .NET Framework SDK free of charge. See Installing the .NET Framework SDK.

Building the Sample

  • This sample connects to your computer's default SQL Server instance. To connect to a named instance, change the connection string from L"(local)" to L"(local)\name" , where name is the named instance. By default, SQL Server Express installs to a named instance.
  • The sample requires you to execute the following stored procedure, which you can find in the sample's scripts directory: * USE AdventureWorks
    DROP PROCEDURE myProc
    GO

    CREATE PROCEDURE myProc
    @inparam nvarchar(5),
    @outparam int OUTPUT

    AS
    SELECT Color, ListPrice
    FROM Production.Product WHERE Size > @inparam
    SELECT @outparam = 100

    IF (@outparam > 0)
    RETURN 999
    ELSE
    RETURN 888
    GO * In SQL Server Management Studio, load and execute the Scripts\setup.sql script or execute the following command in a Command Prompt window: * sqlcmd -E -I -i Scripts\setup.sql *
    • If you are using Visual Studio, load the InitializeAndEstablishConnection_A.sln file and build it.
    • If you are using MSBuild.exe, invoke MSBuild.exe at a command prompt, passing it the InitializeAndEstablishConnection_A.sln file: * MSBuild InitializeAndEstablishConnection_A.sln *

    Running the Sample

    • From Visual Studio, invoke Start Without Debugging (CTRL+F5).
    • If you built with MSBuild.exe, invoke InitializeAndEstablishConnection_A.exe.
