Problem with Oracle Stored Procedures using ODP.NET in VB.NET (VS 2003)

This is the stored procedure,
Procedure RetrieveReservations(pProperty In Varchar2,
pResHeaderId In Varchar2,
pEmail In Varchar2,
pPasswd In Varchar2,
ResultSet In Out ResCursor);
This is the old .asp code (part of it)
objConn.ConnectionString = Application("BackEndConnection_ConnectionString")

objComm.ActiveConnection = objConn

objComm.CommandText = "internet_package.RetrieveReservations"
objComm.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc

objComm.Parameters.Append objComm.CreateParameter("pProperty", adVarChar , adParamInput, 8, Request.QueryString("propid"))
objComm.Parameters.Append objComm.CreateParameter("pResHeaderId", adVarChar, adParamInput, 32, Request.QueryString("confirmnum"))
objComm.Parameters.Append objComm.CreateParameter("pEmail", adVarChar, adParamInput, 64, sUserID)
objComm.Parameters.Append objComm.CreateParameter("pPasswd", adVarChar, adParamInput, 16, sPwd)
'objComm.Parameters.Append objComm.CreateParameter("pMsg", adVarChar, adParamInput, 8)
Set objRS = objComm.Execute

We have already use System.Data.OracleClient, System.Data.OleDB, Oracle.DataAccess.Client, and Oracle.DataAccess.Type
We are using Visual Studio 2003 (ASP.NEt-VB.NET), Oracle 8 or 9 (not sure with this version)

I was able to correct the error but thers is a problem with the results of the stored procedures ... it does not return any values at all

here are my new codes ... we used ODP.NET version Release
which imports Oracle.DataAccess.Client and Oracle.DataAccess.Types
Imports Oracle.DataAccess
Dim odcmd As Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleCommand
Dim odda As Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleDataAdapter
Dim oddr As Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleDataReader
Dim odconn As Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleConnection
sUserID = Session("UserID")
sPwd = Session("Password")
Session("propid") = "314"
Session("confirmnum") = "314027819"
odconn = New Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleConnection(strOracleDataaccessString)
odcmd = New Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleCommand
odcmd.CommandText = "internet_package.RetrieveReservations"
odcmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
odcmd.Connection = odconn
odcmd.Parameters.Add("pProperty", Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleDbType.Varchar2, 8, Session("propid"), ParameterDirection.Input)
odcmd.Parameters.Add("pResHeaderId", Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleDbType.Varchar2, 32, Session("confirmnum"), ParameterDirection.Input)
odcmd.Parameters.Add("pEmail", Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleDbType.Varchar2, 64, sUserID, ParameterDirection.Input)
odcmd.Parameters.Add("pPasswd", Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleDbType.Varchar2, 16, sPwd, ParameterDirection.Input)
odcmd.Parameters.Add("ResultSet", Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleDbType.RefCursor, ParameterDirection.InputOutput)
odda = New Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleDataAdapter(odcmd)
Dim ds As New DataSet
Dim dt As New DataTable
oddr = odcmd.ExecuteReader
If Not ds Is Nothing Then
If ds.Tables.Count > 0 Then
If ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count > 0 Then

Me.dgrReservation.Visible = False
Me.lblList.Visible = True
Me.lblList.Text = "None"
End If
Me.dgrReservation.Visible = False
Me.lblList.Visible = True
Me.lblList.Text = "None"
End If
Me.dgrReservation.Visible = False
Me.lblList.Visible = True
Me.lblList.Text = "None"
End If
While oddr.Read
If oddr.FieldCount > 0 Then
End If
End While
...both dataset and datatable return 0 rows
please advise how do I proceed? Can I convert the RefCursor to dataset or datatable?

Yes you can return the result set as a refcursor to the dataset from the data base tyhroigh the Stored procudre.

I was able to solve the problem it has nothing to do with the dataset ... it is all about the dataadapter used like Oracle.Dataaccess

also need to declare the parameters right...

for example,

odcmd.Parameters.Add("pProperty", Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleDbType.Varchar2, 8,

CStr(Session("propid")), ParameterDirection.Input)


oracmd.Parameters.Add(New Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleParameter("pProperty", Client.OracleDbType.Varchar2, 8, ParameterDirection.Input))

cmd.Parameters("pProperty").Value = CStr(Session("propid"))

... well ... thanks anyway ... this is the first time I used oracle database as a database for a web application(DNN)

Issue using control created in 2003 in 2002
I have a friend that has an issue using my C# custom control in Visual 2002 that I have compiled under Visual 2003. I never did test it with that version, but I was under the impression that it should still work as long as you don't use any features specific to the 1.1 framework (which I really don't think I did). My guess now is that this is correct, but only when using 2002 controls in 2003. I have searched the web, these forums, and MSDN for the last 30 minutes with no real answer.
