Execute oracle stored procedure from C# always returns null

Ronaldo9Ronaldo9 Posts: 1Member
Hi,
I'm trying to execute a stored procedure on oracle 9i. I'm using .Net OracleClient provider.
Apparently, I can execute the stored procedure, but it always returns null as a result (actually all the sp's I have there returns null)! I can execute any text statement against the database successfully, and also I can execute the stored procedure using Toad.
This is not the first time for me to call an oracle stored procedure, but this really is giving me a hard time! Can anyone help please?

Below are the SP, and the code used from .Net to call it, if that can help.

Oracle SP:

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE APIECARE.CHECK_EXISTENCE(l_number IN NUMBER) AS
v_status VARCHAR2(5) := NULL;
BEGIN
BEGIN
SELECT CHECK_NO_EXISTENCE(to_char(l_number))
INTO v_status
FROM DUAL;
EXCEPTION WHEN OTHERS THEN
v_status := NULL;
END;
DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE(v_status);
END CHECK_CONTRNO_EXISTENCE;
/


C# Code:
string connStr = "Data Source=datasource;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=user;Password=pass;Unicode=True";
OracleConnection conn = new OracleConnection(connStr);

OracleParameter param1 = new OracleParameter();
param1.ParameterName = "v_status";
param1.OracleType = OracleType.VarChar;
param1.Size = 5;
param1.Direction = ParameterDirection.Input;

OracleParameter param2 = new OracleParameter();
param2.ParameterName = "l_number";
param2.OracleType = OracleType.Number;
param2.Direction = ParameterDirection.Input;
param2.Value = 006550249;

OracleParameter[] oraParams = new OracleParameter[] { param1, param2 };
OracleCommand cmd = new OracleCommand("CHECK_EXISTENCE", conn);
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
cmd.Parameters.AddRange(oraParams);
conn.Open();
object result = cmd.ExecuteScalar();
conn.Close();
