Problem in getting Oracle function return value using

 Dear All

I fall a problem by getting value from oracle function in the code is as follows...

the oracle function is


 create or replace function ultimus.FXN_GET_TRAN_DATE(pBRANCH_ID IN VARCHAR2) return date is

-- ********************************************************************************
-- Description: Get Branch Working Date
-- ================================================================================

  Result DATE;


     Select  DECODE(a.day_status_id, 2, a.TRAN_DT, NULL) AS TRAN_DT
      Into Result
     Where a.BRANCH_ID = pBRANCH_ID;




And the C# code in is


OracleConnection ocon = new OracleConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["application"].ConnectionString);
           OracleCommand ocom = new OracleCommand();
            ocom.Connection = ocon;
            ocom.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
            ocom.CommandText = "ULTIMUS.FXN_GET_TRAN_DATE";
            ocom.Parameters.Add("pBRANCH_ID", pBRANCH_ID);
            ocom.Parameters.Add("TRAN_DT", DBNull.Value);
            ocom.Parameters["TRAN_DT"].DbType = DbType.Date;
            ocom.Parameters["TRAN_DT"].Direction = ParameterDirection.ReturnValue;

            string s = ocom.Parameters["TRAN_DT"].Value.ToString();


Now the problem:

In my return function parameter i always get "" value. But i test the oracle function and it returns a date value like "27/07/2007". but i got the value "".

Please help me to find out where is the problem.

You would have to use DataSet to return a row and you put your value there.

I am not using any data reader. so why do i need dataset. I am using ExecuteNonquery() function.

Although ExecuteNonQuery may not be the most intuitive name, you will most surely notice why you don't get any return value if you look up the function on MSDN.

Function should be called ExecuteQueryAndDontReturnAnythingAtAll instead Wink

If you are calling Oracle functions with single return value from ASP.NET using ODP.NET, then you have to make your ReturnValue parameter the first parameter in you OracleParameter Collection to make it work.

Hi Friend,

1st, Your function takes only 1 parameter and you are trying to pass 2 parameters from your .net code.

2. You write a simple query something like this.

select ultimus.FXN_GET_TRAN_DATE('YourBranchID') from dual;

this query will fetch the result in a datareader and then read the value from there.

Hope this will help you.

In ODP.NET, the closest I can find is the OpenWithNewPassword option. However, the ODP.NET Developer's Guide says 'Note: OpenWithNewPassword should only be used when the user password has expired, not for changing the password.' That's all there is, no mention about how to change a password...
