Thank you again for your advice. Now I understand what you mean.
Actually I made a descendant class of TSQLQuery, which override
StrToStatementType to force TStatementType on stExecPrcedure, but
it did not work then. Your suggestion is that in addition to it,
I should create a small sub-query to get OUTPUT parameter as result set.

I will try to proceed. On the other hand, I'm wondering if TSQLQuery
(or TMSSQLConnection) would natively support OUTPUT parameter and
