  • Procedure is a generic term used to describe an executable object, or a named entity that can be invoked using input and output parameters.

  • DB_Procedures corresponds to SQLProcedures. For additional information about SQLProcedures, see SQLProcedures Function.

  • The catalog-name argument cannot contain a wildcard.

  • The following wildcard characters are supported for arguments:
    Wildcard character Matches
    % The percent sign matches any character sequence.
    _ The underscore matches any single character.
  • To omit a variable argument, which is not a required argument, specify the argument as an empty string ("").

  • When you receive a valid statement handle, you can call DB_FetchNext or DB_FetchPrevious to manipulate the information.
