I have this task that creates a connection to a database and uses this connection later on in the task to start a stored procedure.
This worked fine in 9 and 10 but gives an error in 11.

ERROR [42000][Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0][SQL Server]Incorrect syntax near '@RETURN_VALUE'.

When I change the connection from Session to Host and create the same connection within the action, then it works fine.
So stored procedure + session does not work, stored procedure + host does work.

Is this a bug in 11?

Hi Edward,

I did some testing but wasn't able to reproduce this error on

We always suggest using the OLE DB Provider for SQL Server over the SQL Native Client if possible.  I tested with SQL Native Client 11.0 as well, as I don't have 10.0 available.
