I am trying to call a stored procedure from my C# windows application. The stored procedure is running on a local instance of SQL Server 2008. I am able to call the stored procedure but I am not able to retrieve the value back from the stored procedure. This stored procedure is supposed to return the next number in the sequence. I have done research online and all the sites I've seen have pointed to this solution working.
Stored procedure code:
ALTER procedure [dbo].[usp_GetNewSeqVal] @SeqName nvarchar(255) as begin declare @NewSeqVal int set NOCOUNT ON update AllSequences set @NewSeqVal = CurrVal = CurrVal+Incr where SeqName = @SeqName if @@rowcount = 0 begin print 'Sequence does not exist' return end return @NewSeqVal end
Code calling the stored procedure:
SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(getConnectionString()); conn.Open(); SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(parameterStatement.getQuery(), conn); cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure; SqlParameter param = new SqlParameter(); param = cmd.Parameters.Add("@SeqName", SqlDbType.NVarChar); param.Direction = ParameterDirection.Input; param.Value = "SeqName"; SqlDataReader reader = cmd.ExecuteReader();
I have also tried using a
DataSet to retrieve the return value with the same result. What am I missing to get
the return value from my stored procedure? If more information is needed, please let me know.
