Thanks for replying. According to the PDO doco: "If the database driver supports it, you may also bind parameters for output as well as input." So maybe this driver doesn't support it? I don't know. I'll try and get the stored proc to return the value, but not sure how I'll capture that yet. If that doesn't work, I'll just do a "select @@identity".
Thanks again. Regards, Bruce >>> Chris <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> 6/07/2007 12:44:34 p.m. >>> Bruce Cowin wrote: > I'm using PHP 5.1.

That is, when you bind a parameter it only works for the query TO the database, they are not filled in for outgoing results. Can you get your stored procedure to return the new id? I'm not sure how this works for a stored procedure, but see the examples here: http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.PDO-prepare.php -- Postgresql & php tutorials http://www.designmagick.com/ -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
