PHP Manual :: PDOStatement::nextRowset

(PHP 5 >= 5.1.0, PHP 7, PECL pdo >= 0.2.0)

PDOStatement::nextRowset Advances to the next rowset in a multi-rowset statement handle


public bool PDOStatement::nextRowset ( void )

Some database servers support stored procedures that return more than one rowset (also known as a result set). PDOStatement::nextRowset() enables you to access the second and subsequent rowsets associated with a PDOStatement object. Each rowset can have a different set of columns from the preceding rowset.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.


Example #1 Fetching multiple rowsets returned from a stored procedure

The following example shows how to call a stored procedure, MULTIPLE_ROWSETS, that returns three rowsets. We use a do / while loop to loop over the PDOStatement::nextRowset() method, which returns false and terminates the loop when no more rowsets can be returned.

'CALL multiple_rowsets()';
$stmt $conn->query($sql);
$i 1;
do {
$rowset $stmt->fetchAll(PDO::FETCH_NUM);
    if (
$rowset) {
} while (

printResultSet(&$rowset$i) {
"Result set $i:\n";
    foreach (
$rowset as $row) {
        foreach (
$row as $col) {
$col "\t";

The above example will output:

Result set 1:
apple    red
banana   yellow

Result set 2:
orange   orange    150
banana   yellow    175

Result set 3:
lime     green
apple    red
banana   yellow
