Consider the following scenario:

  • You have an application to call stored procedure (SP) from remote procedure call (RPC) with PREPARE option and this procedure has one or more output parameters.

  • You use Microsoft OLE DB Driver 18 for SQL Server.

  • Your SQL Server instance uses Microsoft SQL Server 2014 32-bit version.

In this scenario, the output parameters of the SP are returned correctly in the first call (by using sp_prepexecrpc). However, subsequent callsĀ (by using sp_execute) of the SP may not return the parameters correctly.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
