Problem with SQLParameter data type (because 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlParameter' is not derived from 'StoreBO.StoreBackOffice.SqlParameter'. )

I have a webservice that has the below procedure. Basically a procedure to
called a stored procedure and return the results. When I try to call the
webservice from my program I get the error. Both my calling code and the
webservice code are below. Thanks for your help.
D:\Projects .NET\StoreBO\frmVoids.vb(182): Value of type '1-dimensional
array of System.Data.SqlClient.SqlParameter' cannot be converted to
'1-dimensional array of StoreBO.StoreBackOffice.SqlParameter' because
'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlParameter' is not derived from

Private Sub GetData(Optional ByVal MyFilter As Integer = 0)

MyParams(1) = New SqlParameter("@EndDate",


MyParams(2) = New SqlParameter("@Store", MyFilter)

MyParams(3) = New SqlParameter("@UnVerifiedOnly", 0)

MyParams(4) = New SqlParameter("@PostVoidsOnly", 0)

MyParams(5) = New SqlParameter("@PostVoidTimeDifference", 0)

Dim RsTemp As DataSet

RsTemp = New DataSet

Me.grdVoids.DataSource = Nothing
Dim rsData As New DataSet

Dim MySvc As New StoreBackOffice.StoreBackOffice

Dim ErrorMsg As String = "Error getting Post Void Information"


If MySvc.GetDataFromStoredProcedure(MerchConn,

"vm_VoidsAudit", MyParams, MerchConn, ErrorMsg, RsTemp, "Voids", 120) = True



Me.grdVoids.DataSource = rsData.Tables("Voids")


MessageBox.Show(ErrorMsg, "Error getting Void Data", MessageBoxButtons.OK,

End If

Catch ex As System.Exception

Dim sMsg As String = "There has been an error Post Voids Information : " &

MessageBox.Show(sMsg, "Error loading data", MessageBoxButtons.OK,

End Try

Me.Cursor = Cursors.Default
End Sub

To overcome these problems the best thing you can do is set in the top of
your programs

Option Strict on
Than this kind of problems will be showed (mostly) in your code.

I do have option Strict On. The problem would more than likely go away if I
did not have this on. The problem is for some reason the SQLParameter type
is getting changed when I reference a webservice that takes that as a
parameter. Within the webservice it is fine.. it is just a problem in the
referencing program.

From the error, it seems to be a casting error.
This is because the WebService wanted a himself defined SqlParameter class
as below.
This is included in the Reference.vb file in the web service generated

Because WebService can be consumed by many client, e.g. java, so the .NET
defined SqlParameter class is not specifed in java, the Webservice then
define a described SqlParameter.
TestWS/Service1")> _
Public Class SqlParameter
Inherits MarshalByRefObject

Public DbType As DbType

<System.ComponentModel.DefaultValueAttribute(SqlDb Type.NVarChar)> _
Public SqlDbType As SqlDbType = SqlDbType.NVarChar


<System.ComponentModel.DefaultValueAttribute(Param eterDirection.Input)> _
Public Direction As ParameterDirection = ParameterDirection.Input

<System.ComponentModel.DefaultValueAttribute(false )> _
Public IsNullable As Boolean = false

<System.ComponentModel.DefaultValueAttribute(0)> _
Public Offset As Integer = 0

<System.ComponentModel.DefaultValueAttribute("") > _
Public ParameterName As String = ""

<System.ComponentModel.DefaultValueAttribute(GetTy pe(System.Byte),
"0")> _
Public Precision As Byte = CType(0,Byte)

<System.ComponentModel.DefaultValueAttribute(GetTy pe(System.Byte),
"0")> _
Public Scale As Byte = CType(0,Byte)

<System.ComponentModel.DefaultValueAttribute(0)> _
Public Size As Integer = 0

<System.ComponentModel.DefaultValueAttribute("") > _
Public SourceColumn As String = ""


<System.ComponentModel.DefaultValueAttribute(DataR owVersion.Current)> _
Public SourceVersion As DataRowVersion = DataRowVersion.Current

Public Value As Object
End Class

I think you may try to use the full qualified name as below to use the
Webservice SqlParameter in the winform client.
localhost.SqlParameter 'Webservice name is localhost.
