I am surprised by the order of the data returned from my stored
procedure, and that it appears associated with the incorrect variables.
Apparently the data is returned entirely positionally, without
consideration for the variable names. So, the names of the OUT
parameters in the procedure appear to be invisible outside of the
procedure. Although I pass in variables with the same names as the
Parameters, they are filled positionally - in the "wrong" variables -
because in this case I had two variables reversed positionally.
When I retrieve them using fetch_assoc, the wrong data appears in the

My database is Mysql. The data seems to display properly there. I'm
accessing the database with procedures that are part of PHP and that is
where I believe the problem is. That's why I asked it on this "Newsgroup".
I got it to work by putting my parameters in the proper order. I know
this is how function and procedure calls normally work, but the
documentation of fetch_assoc() leads in another direction. It looks like
the "Associations" are created within my php and not carried from the
database for stored procedures. I wonder if PHP does this for all
databases? I think this differs from "Select * From Table". Certainly
could use another sentence in the documentation.
You can submit documentation patches and/or submit a note for that
situation on that page in the manual.
