OPO and stored procedure parameters

Question:
Stored procedure on WG7.3 Oracle expects three parameters. I can get OPO 2.0 to pass the params if I cite them literally as, for example, exec sql begin addnewperson('John','Quincy','Doe'); end;.

I'd like to pass the params as variables obtained from text field values, but cannot come up with the correct way to pass single-quote enclosed params to the stored procedure. Any ideas?

Answer:
One of the limitations of the EXEC SQL command is that you can only use bind variables to receive data, or in the WHERE clause of a SQL statement.

Your best bet is to parse the appropriate string and use that as the EXEC SQL command string. It's only one more line of code, and it will work.
