FIX: BUG: Error 0x80004005 Calling Certain Stored Procedures in Oracle

View products that this article applies to.


A call to certain stored procedures that contain parameters may fail, resulting in OLE DB error 0x80004005 when using the Microsoft OLEDB Provider for Oracle older than version 2.10.3912.0.

↑ Back to the top


In the MS Oracle OLEDB Provider at times there is not enough memory allocated to handle stored procedure parameters of a specific cumulative size or greater. This condition appears to generate an Oracle error 6215, but the provider does not trap for this particular error and simply fails the call with the generic "0x80004005 Errors occurred" error.

It is possible to reduce the number of parameters in your SQL Statement and thereby avoid this error. Or you can choose to select the Microsoft OLEDB Provider for ODBC, so you may connect to the Oracle database through an Oracle ODBC driver.
