FIX: 50 or More Output Parameters Produces "Unspecified Error" with the OLE DB Provider for Oracle


View products that this article applies to.

This article was previously published under Q259941

↑ Back to the top


Symptoms

Under the following conditions:
  • you are using the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle to connect to Oracle 8i database -and-

  • you are running a stored procedure inside of a package that returns 50 or more output parameters
an "Unspecified Error" is generated by the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle.

The error does not occur when the stored procedure returns 49 or fewer output parameters. It also does not occur if 50 or more output parameters are returned but you are using the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC.

↑ Back to the top


Cause

Because of changes in Oracle between version 7.3/8.0 and version 8i, the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle does not communicate with 8i in the same manner it did with 7.3/8.0.

↑ Back to the top


Resolution

To temporarily work around this problem, you can use the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC.

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

This problem was corrected in the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle included in Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.6.

Steps to Reproduce Behavior

In Oracle's SQL*Plus utility, execute the following:
  1. Create a table:
    DROP TABLE storedprocedureTable;
    
    CREATE TABLE storedprocedureTable 
    (
    ssn     NUMBER(9) PRIMARY KEY, 
    fname   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn1     NUMBER(9), 
    fname1   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname1   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn2     NUMBER(9), 
    fname2   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname2   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn3     NUMBER(9), 
    fname3   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname3   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn4     NUMBER(9), 
    fname4   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname4   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn5     NUMBER(9), 
    fname5   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname5   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn6     NUMBER(9), 
    fname6   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname6   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn7     NUMBER(9), 
    fname7   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname7   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn8     NUMBER(9), 
    fname8   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname8   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn9     NUMBER(9), 
    fname9   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname9   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn10     NUMBER(9), 
    fname10   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname10   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn11     NUMBER(9), 
    fname11   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname11   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn12     NUMBER(9), 
    fname12   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname12   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn13     NUMBER(9), 
    fname13   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname13   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn14     NUMBER(9), 
    fname14   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname14   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn15     NUMBER(9), 
    fname15   VARCHAR2(1000), 
    lname15   VARCHAR2(2000),
    ssn16     NUMBER(9), 
    fname16   VARCHAR2(1000)
    );
    					
  2. Insert some values into the table:
    INSERT INTO storedprocedureTable (ssn,fname,lname)  VALUES(555662222,'Sam','Goodwin'); 
    
    INSERT INTO storedprocedureTable (ssn,fname,lname)  VALUES(555882222,'Kent','Clark'); 
    
    INSERT INTO storedprocedureTable (ssn,fname,lname)  VALUES(666223333,'Jane','Doe'); 
    
    INSERT INTO storedprocedureTable (ssn,fname,lname) VALUES(666223331,  NULL, 'Doe'); 
    					
  3. Create a package for 50 output parameters:
    CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE pk_storedProcedure

  9. NOTE: Prior to running the project, be certain to run the appropriate Oracle scripts for the number of output parameters (49 or 50) that you intend to test.

    Run the project.

To Test with 50 Output Parameters

  1. Click the Cn OleDb Provider for Oracle command button to open a connection using the OLEDB Provider for Oracle.
  2. Click the Run With 50 Output Parameters command button to run the stored procedure which returns 50 output parameters.

    The "Unspecified Error" message will appear.
  3. Click the Cn Using ODBC command button to open a connection using ODBC.
  4. Click the Run With 50 Output Parameters command button to run the stored procedure which returns 50 output parameters. Notice that the error does not occur.

To Test These Scenarios with 49 Output Parameters

Run the appropriate Oracle scripts to create the same items with 49 rather than 50 output parameters as noted earlier. (These scripts can also be edited to use anywhere from 1 to 48 output parameters as well.)
