A little digging, since I was also interested, reveal the following: At the bottom of : Multiple SELECT statements generate multiple result sets, so the client must use a MySQL client library that supports multiple result sets. This means the client must use a client library from a version of MySQL at least as recent as 4.1. The client should also specify the CLIENT_MULTI_RESULTS option when it connects. For C programs, this can be done with the mysql_real_connect() C API function. See Section 220.127.116.11, “mysql_real_connect()”, and Section 20.8.12, “C API Support for Multiple Statement Execution”. And digging around : Handling result sets Stored procedures can return result sets. Result sets returned from a stored procedure cannot be fetched correctly using mysqli_query(). The mysqli_query() function combines statement execution and fetching the first result set into a buffered result set, if any. However, there are additional stored procedure result sets hidden from the user which cause mysqli_query() to fail returning the user expected result sets. Result sets returned from a stored procedure are fetched using mysqli_real_query() or mysqli_multi_query(). Both functions allow fetching any number of result sets returned by a statement, such as CALL. Failing to fetch all result sets returned by a stored procedure causes an error. Example #3 on page  shows the use of retrieving multiple sets from a stored procedure. : http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/stored-routines-syntax.html : http://www.php.net/manual/en/mysqli.quickstart.stored-procedures.php -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
