PHP and MS-SQL Stored Procedures

How do you pass a variable value into an MS-SQL stored procedure in PHP?

I can pass two hardcoded values and it works fine:

<?php


require_once 'Database.php';
$db = Database::connect('Database_Name');


$db->query('pSomeStoredProcedure 26, 1');

?>

However, when I try a variable = 26 instead of 26.
This doesn't work:

<?php


require_once 'Database.php';
$db = Database::connect('Database_Name');
$variable = 26;

$db->query('pSomeStoredProcedure $variable, 1');

?>

Any ideas on how I can pass $variable instead of hard coded 26 into the procedure?

Thanks,
Karl

$variable = 26;

$db->query('pSomeStoredProcedure $variable, 1');

Yup, do this instead:

[code]
<?php

require_once 'Database.php';
$db = Database::connect('Database_Name');
$variable = 26;

$db->query("pSomeStoredProcedure $variable, 1");

?>
[/code]

The only difference is single quotes versus double quotes in the query line. Basically, PHP will not convert variables if the string is enclosed in single quotes, but will for double quotes.

Or you could bind the variable using the mssql stored procedure functions.

[code]
require_once 'Database.php';
$db = Database::connect('Database_Name');
$variable = 26;

$query = mssql_init("spSomeStoredProcedure", $db);
mssql_bind($query, "@some_id", $variable, MSSQL_NUM, FALSE, FALSE, 7);

$result = mssql_execute($query);[/code]
