PHP Manual :: odbc_execute

odbc_exec || odbc_fetch_array || ODBC Functions || PHP Manual

(PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7)

odbc_executeExecute a prepared statement


bool odbc_execute ( resource $result_id [, array $parameters_array ] )

Executes a statement prepared with odbc_prepare().



The result id resource, from odbc_prepare().


Parameters in parameter_array will be substituted for placeholders in the prepared statement in order. Elements of this array will be converted to strings by calling this function.

Any parameters in parameter_array which start and end with single quotes will be taken as the name of a file to read and send to the database server as the data for the appropriate placeholder.

If you wish to store a string which actually begins and ends with single quotes, you must add a space or other non-single-quote character to the beginning or end of the parameter, which will prevent the parameter from being taken as a file name. If this is not an option, then you must use another mechanism to store the string, such as executing the query directly with odbc_exec()).

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.


Example #1 odbc_execute() and odbc_prepare() example

In the following code, $success will only be TRUE if all three parameters to myproc are IN parameters:

$b 2;
$c 3;
$stmt    odbc_prepare($conn'CALL myproc(?,?,?)');
$success odbc_execute($stmt, array($a$b$c));

If you need to call a stored procedure using INOUT or OUT parameters, the recommended workaround is to use a native extension for your database (for example, mssql for MS SQL Server, or oci8 for Oracle).


Version Description
4.2.0 File reading is now subject to safe mode and open-basedir restrictions in parameters_array.
