Execute external database Stored Procedure from X++ code using ODBC connectivity

This is to show a method to execute external database stored procedures from X++ code. Create a job in AOT with following code. Follow the steps as explained here in the code like replace Server Name, Database name , Stored Procedure name.

The below code is executed through the ODBC Connection.

static void execExternalDatabase(Args _args)
LoginProperty loginProperty;
ODBCConnection odbcConnection;
Statement statement;
ResultSet resultSet;

ResultSetMetaData resultSetMetaData;
Counter counter;
str sql;
SqlStatementExecutePermission perm;

loginProperty = new LoginProperty();
loginProperty.setServer("SERVERNAME Here"); // Replace your Database Server Name here
loginProperty.setDatabase("DemoDB"); //Replace your Database name here
odbcConnection = new ODBCConnection(loginProperty); // setting odbc connection here.

// ODBC Connection to create statement
statement = odbcConnection.createStatement();

// Replace the StoredProcedure you want to execute.
sql = strfmt('EXEC[myStoredProcedureName]');

// Set code access permission to Execute
perm = new SqlStatementExecutePermission(sql);

// if Stored Procedure has Select query use executeQuery method.

resultSet = statement.executeQuery(sql);

resultSetMetaData = resultSet.getMetaData();
for (counter = 1; counter <= resultSetMetaData.getColumnCount(); counter++)
case 0,1 :
case 3:
catch (exception::Error)
print "An error occured in the query.";
// Code access permission scope ends here.

Used a simple select query in the stored procedure and the result will be displayed on the infolog.
