Avoid Using Refresh() Method

Refresh method of Parameters collection is used to populate the Parameter
objects in the collection. This method queries the data provider to
populate the collection with Parameter objects containing specific details
of the parameters. After execution of this method, you can access this
collection to stuff in the values of the parameters or to check other
properties of parameters.

You should avoid the usage of this method because it makes a hit to the
server to get the parameter details. If you are using SQL Server, you can
always run SQL Trace utility to verify that a call to Refresh makes a hit
to the server to get the parameters. But during development stage, you can
always use this method to know the exact details about the parameters and
later on you can use CreateParameter() method of Command object to populate
the Parameters collection using code.

Here is a sample method which uses both Refresh and CreateParamter() to
build the parameter information for the stored procedure:

 Private Sub BuildParameterInfo(ByVal lngSampleIdNo As Long, 
strSampleName As String, strSampleDesc As String)Dim oConnection As ADODB.Connection ' Connection ObjectDim oCommand As ADODB.Command ' Command Object' Create a new Connection ObjectSet oConnection = New ADODB.Connection' Create a new Command ObjectSet oCommand = New ADODB.Command' Open the connectionoConnection.Open "DSN=Sample", "sa", ""' Set connection into the Command ObjectSet oCommand.ActiveConnection = oConnection' Set Command text property to the name of stored procedure to be
executedoCommand.CommandText = "sp_AddRecordToSampleTable"oCommand.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc' ** ** Quick but Expensive way to build the parameter information by
calling refresh methodWith oCommand.Parameters.Refresh.Item(1).Value = lngSampleIdNo.Item(2).Value = strSampleName.Item(3).Value = strSampleDescEnd With' ** ** Efficient way to build parameter information by calling
CreateParameter() method and then' ** ** appending it to the Parameters collectionWith oCommand.Parameters.Append oCommand.CreateParameter("SampleIdNo", adInteger, adParamInput,, lngSampleIdNo).Append oCommand.CreateParameter("SampleName", adVarChar, adParamInput,20, strSampleName).Append oCommand.CreateParameter("SampleDesc", adVarChar, adParamInput,200, strSampleDesc)End With' Call Execute of Command Object to execute the stored procedureoCommand.ExecuteEnd Sub
