none receive response from a stored procedure in DB2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to get the return of a stored procedure in a DB2 database. I followed samples I found on the 'net and created the code below. It does touch the SP, and creates a return. But.. I can't seem to be able to fill the catalog as needed. I know its Christmas eve, but this is driving me nuts! What is going wrong?

    Merry Christmas (to those that follow the holiday)..


       Dim CMD = New OleDbCommand
            CMD.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            CMD.CommandText = "STprocedure"
            CMD.Connection = MOHconn
    ‘************************************* Input
            CMD.Parameters.Add("P_CUSTOMER", OleDbType.Integer, 11).Value = Acct
            CMD.Parameters("P_CUSTOMER").Direction = ParameterDirection.Input
            CMD.Parameters.Add("P_ITEM", OleDbType.VarChar, 50).Value = Item
            CMD.Parameters("P_Item").Direction = ParameterDirection.Input
            CMD.Parameters.Add("P_REQ_QTY", OleDbType.Integer, 11).Value = Qty
            CMD.Parameters("P_REQ_Qty").Direction = ParameterDirection.Input
            CMD.Parameters.Add("P_ZIP", OleDbType.VarChar, 5).Value = Zip
            CMD.Parameters("P_Zip").Direction = ParameterDirection.Input
    ‘*************************************** Output

            RetCart_Qty.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
            Dim RetUnit_Price = CMD.Parameters.Add("OP_Unit_Price", OleDbType.VarChar, 11)
            RetUnit_Price.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
            Dim RetZIP = CMD.Parameters.Add("OP_ZIP", OleDbType.VarChar, 11)
            RetZIP.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
            Dim RetCustomer = CMD.Parameters.Add("OP_Customer", OleDbType.VarChar, 11)
            RetCustomer.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
                PriceList.Add(New PriceReturn() With {
                                 .ZIP = Trim(CMD.Parameters("OP_ZIP").Value()),
                                 .ITEM = Trim(CMD.Parameters("OP_ITEM").Value()),
                                 .CART_QTY = CMD.Parameters("OP_CART_QTY").Value(),
                                 .UNIT_PRICE = CMD.Parameters("OP_UNIT_PRICE").Value(),
                                 .CUSTOMER = CMD.Parameters("OP_CUSTOMER").Value()

  • Julie,

    Merry Christmas too.

    First of all, this is a 24 hours active forum, so there is no morning or eve because that is for most contributors different. 

    However, to give a solution. Start first with a very simple windows form project, where you only run the Stored procedure with a command.ExecuteScalar and look then what kind of result you get.

    Success Cor

  • Hi juliemac,

    According to your description and your code, I don't find any error. I find that there are five value output, so have you define these five parameter output in Store Procedure? Can you please share your Store procedure here?

    I think  CMD.Parameters("parameter").Direction = ParameterDirection.Input
    is not needed, you can delete these.

    Best Regards,
