Stored Procedure Parameters Property Page (ADP)

Shows the parameters defined for the stored procedure you are creating. Each row of the grid contains information about one parameter. Each parameter has a name, a data type, and optionally a default value.

You cannot create a new parameter with this property page; you can only modify existing parameters. To create a new parameter, enter the parameter in a Column or Criteria cell of the Grid pane or directly in the SQL pane.


You cannot edit the parameter name on this property page. To change a parameter name, you must modify it wherever it appears in the Grid pane or the SQL pane. Note that the first character of every parameter name must be the at sign (@).

Data Type

The data type appears in condensed form. The condensed form includes the maximum column width in parentheses after the name of the data type. For example:



The default value is optional.

If you change a parameter’s data type, the existing default value will be cleared.
