The MSSQL extension fails to even open (using mssql_query) a query on a stored procedure that uses a cursor on a query containing an expression.  The following SP works fine in Query Analyser (MSSQL7) but will not get past the mssql_query line in PHP.  The occurrence of the expression "id + 1" is, bizarrely, the apparent cause of the problem.  Changing this to just "id" makes it all work from PHP.



--This makes no difference:
-- set nocount on

declare c scroll cursor for
select id + 1 as newid from table

open c
fetch next from c

while (@@fetch_status = 0)
  fetch next from c

close c
deallocate c

-- set nocount off

Cursors are broken in 4.2.0, it is fixed in 4.2.1-dev. To test yourself can a stable snapshot from, or wait for 4.2.1 which will be released next week.

I have the same problem. I am using PHP statement mssql_query( "EXEC db_sequence 1, 2, 3, 1" ) {query B} to call stored procedure on MSSQL 2000 server, which produces output using cursor. Different is (against Jasons prob), that I use global cursor defined using mssql_query( "DECLARE  rowset CURSOR GLOBAL SCROLL FOR $query" ) {query A} because I need dynamically choose executed query. Statement {A} creates global cursor which is fetched and dropped in SP db_sequence {B}. When I uses as $query SQL command 'SELECT id FROM store', it works fine. But if I use something like 'SELECT id+1 AS col FROM store', PHP crashes. Both sequences of SQL queries run without problems in SQL Query Analyzer (SQL 2k).

I found this problem on PHP version 4.2.0 for win32. I try latest version of PHP from (both, stable v4.2.2-dev and unstable v4.3.0-dev) but problem persists. I'm using Apache 1.3.20/PHP 4.2.0 on Win2k advanced server. Can you tell me, what is wrong?
