port? Hi, Franck, Looking over things, I think here is how I would proceed: Open a database connection (of course, substituting the "real" names where needed :-): my-db: open scheme://database-name Then check to be sure that the default number of rows is at your desired minimum: probe my-db/locals You should receive something back like: make object! [ auto-commit: true access: `write rows: 10 ] If the rows is set to 1, then you may have your answer about why only one result is returned. I am anticipating that you will see "row: 10". Next you get your port connection: my-db-port: first my-db The port is supposed to inherit from the database options, but recheck anyway: probe my-db-port/locals Again, you should see something like: make object! [ auto-commit: true access: `write rows: 10 ] where rows is more than 1! Next you send your SQL command: insert command "getOrder 1234" There are (at least) four ways to read from the port. The first, you have already tried. It *is* supposed to return all the records (at least up to the number specified in the options). A second way can be done one at a time: a-record: first my-db-port This command can be repeated for more records, but it will return an error when the port is empty. A similar, alternative approach is to use pick for one record at a time until 'none is returned: a-record: pick my-db-port 1 or use this in a loop: while [a-record: pick my-db-port 1][print a-record] The fourth way is to specify exactly how many records to be copied: blk-of-records: copy/part my-db-port 5 This is really just a variation on the method that you have already tried, so I doubt it will yield anything different (as long as the database and port connections options have set row to more than 1). If none of these approaches yield any useful results or surprising answers, then I would try sending SQL statements that comprise the stored procedure *one at a time* to see if you can at least get more than one row returning at a time. I do not believe that REBOL will allow two back to back SQL statements to be sent *at the same time*, when using a DSN, because the results of the second will ablate the results of the first, if I understand correctly. (Other databases, like MySQL, that are port access only, apparently will stack results, which is what I remember when I used Allen K's mysql scheme. You have to keep polling the port to clear the port.) If all else fails, open your window, look to be sure no one is below your window, and shove your entire computer system out the window, and then travel to Tibet and become an ascetic monk! :-) Or, perhaps more useful, let the list know what you found. Maybe something else will become obvious. Good luck! --Scott Jones
