Need Help Running Stored Procedure in ASP

Jun 11, 2012 12:23 PM

I have a web page in which I would like to use a query string like


This takes the user to a page with the following code:


<!-- #include file="database_connection.asp" -->
if not isempty(request.querystring("id")) then
  sql="exec dbo.fp_qr_code @sequence =(request.querystring("id"))"
if rs.state=1 then rs.close sql,conn,3,2
   if rs.recordcount<>0 then
     session("name") = rs("name")
  session("jobid") = rs("jobid")
  session("seq") = rs("seq")
if rs("id")<>"" then response.Redirect("index.asp")
end if
end if


This queries a SQL database to return the "Name" value. In turn, as the code implies the user should be directed to "Index.asp" which contains:


Welcome  <% response.write(session("name"))%>


And the page should render the page with "Welcome Name".  Instead I get a 500 Server Error.  The Stored Procedure works as a stand-alone query in SQL Management Studio.


Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    You have a variable inside your sql string which will never be evaluated. I think you'd be much better off using the command object, but if you still want to use the Open method, try this:


      sql="exec dbo.fp_qr_code @sequence =" & request.querystring("id")

    I made that change, but it is still creating a 500 Server Error.  I do appreciate your effort, however.

    I always used the command object for stored procedures. That's what I would suggest at this point.

    Of course. The sproc parameter needed to be quoted. Good catch.
