Bde.DBTables TStoredProc


Specifies which Oracle overloaded stored procedure to execute.

Use Overload to specify which overloaded stored procedure to execute on an Oracle server. An Oracle overloaded stored procedure is one that shares a name with one or more other stored procedures. Oracle distinguishes among overloaded stored procedures by assigning each procedure a unique numeric identifier. An application can specify this identifier using the Overload property.

By default, Overload is zero, which assumes there is no procedure overloading. For all servers except Oracle, do not change this value. If an application attempts to access an Oracle overloaded procedure without setting Overload, the Borland Database Engine (BDE) accesses the lowest numbered, or first, overloaded procedure on the server.

If Overload is 1, the BDE executes the first overloaded procedure on the server. If Overload is 2, it executes the second, and so on.

Note: While Oracle overloaded procedures share names, their parameter lists are unique. An application must ensure that it passes the correct parameter list to an overloaded procedure.
