For execution of RPC (procs using placeholders) you must use the form
"exec procname ...".
And lastly - if you are using FreeTDS then most of this (placeholders,
array binding, RPC execution) doesn't work anyway, because FreeTDS's
implementation of OpenClient isn't complete in this respect (or at least
wasn't last time I looked - I have to admit that I don't really look all
