adodbapi return value

P: n/a
I'm trying to use the adodbapi module, but run into the following

After initalization (connection, cursor) I have the following call to
a stored procedure (SQL Server, using SQLOLEDB.1 provider).

m = u'BrReg'
rs = u''
msg = u''
x = self.cur.callproc('__DocFetchBaseCategories', (0, 0, m, rs, msg))
print x
[0, 0, u'BrReg', u'', u''] print self.cur.returnValue None print self.cur.rowcount -1

The procedure is enclosed below. Strange thing is that if the
variable 'm' is set to an empty string, everything works ok, the
resultstate value (x[3]) becomes '_OK'. However having the variable
'm' set to 'BrReg' as indicated, seems to result in the returned set
(x) not being updated. When executing the Stored Procedure in Query
Analyzer, everything seems to be ok (BrReg is a valid value and
results in both '_OK' resultstate and a set of values (record set)).

When using the value m='', the returnValue when printed is 0.

---------------------------- FRAGMENT OF SQL CODE --------------------
create proc __DocFetchBaseCategories (
@TraceLevel int,
@UserId int,
@Module varchar(32),
@Resultstate varchar(121) output,
@Message varchar(255) output
) as
if @Module <> ''
select 10000,
from _DerivedCategories D, _Categories C
where D.Category like (@Module + '[_]%')
and not D.BaseCategory like (@Module + '[_]%')
and D.DerivedLevel = 1
and D.Category = C.Category
select 10000,
from _Categories
where BaseCategory = ''

select @ResultState = '_OK',
@Message = ''



The connection object reports 0 ADOerrors when I use the method
printADOerrors on the connection object.

Any help is appreciated.

Found out what's wrong. The "Output Parameter Availablity" property
of the connection has the value DBPROPVAL_OA_ATROWRELEASE. By closing
the record set (reading out the result set first) the output
parameters were correct. Made the modification directly in the
executeHelper method of the Cursor object. Changed at the end of the

if isStoredProcedureCall and parameters != None:
return self._returnADOCommandParameters(self.cmd)


if isStoredProcedureCall and parameters != None:
x = self.fetchall()
return self._returnADOCommandParameters(self.cmd), x

Guess this is not the right way. Any comments appreciated.
