I am trying to retrieve data from stored procedure in entity framework code first model. But while I try it gives me an error “The underlying provider failed on an open” for the inner list of data.
       using (ProductDbContext dbUserContext = new ProductDbContext())
           listProducts = dbUserContext.Database.SqlQuery<products>("SP_GetAllProducts");
           dbUserContext.Database.Initialize(force: false);
           var dbProdCmd = dbUserContext.Database.Connection.CreateCommand();
           dbProdCmd.Connection = dbUserContext.Database.Connection;

           dbProdCmd.CommandText = "SP_GetAllProducts";
           dbProdCmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
               // dbUserContext.Database.Connection.Open();
               var prodReader = dbProdCmd.ExecuteReader();
               listProducts = ((IObjectContextAdapter)dbUserContext)
              .Translate<products>(prodReader, "Products", MergeOption.AppendOnly).ToList();

           //((IObjectContextAdapter)dbUserContext).ObjectContext.ContextOptions.LazyLoadingEnabled = false;
           return View(listProducts);
Stored Procedure:
CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[SP_GetAllProducts]
	-- Add the parameters for the stored procedure here
	-- SET NOCOUNT ON added to prevent extra result sets from
	-- interfering with SELECT statements.
    -- Insert statements for procedure here
	SELECT * FROM [DBO].[Products]
	SELECT * FROM [DBO].[prd1]
	SELECT * FROM [DBO].[prd2]
	SELECT * FROM [DBO].[prd3]
	SELECT * FROM [DBO].[prd4]
	SELECT * FROM [DBO].[prd5]
	SELECT * FROM [DBO].[prd6]
Model: Model structure is something like this:
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System;
using System.Data.Entity;
namespace Project.Models
    public class Products
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public string Description { get; set; }
        public DateTime CreationDate { get; set; }
        public DateTime ModificationDate { get; set; }
        public virtual ICollection<t> prd1 { get; set; }
        public virtual ICollection<t> prd2 { get; set; }
        public virtual ICollection<t> prd3 { get; set; }
        public virtual ICollection<t> prd4 { get; set; }
        public virtual ICollection<t> prd5 { get; set; }
    public class ProductContext : DbContext
        public DbSet<t> prd { get; set; }
        public DbSet<t> prd1 { get; set; }
        public DbSet<t> prd2 { get; set; }
        public DbSet<t> prd3 { get; set; }
        public DbSet<t> prd4 { get; set; }
        public DbSet<t> prd5 { get; set; }
Please reply ASAP.

Any progress?

As above we have mentioned our Stored Procedure structure, there are multiple select queries for different tables to fetch records.

If we use join then will it resolve our issues?

Please let me know your thoughts and suggestations.

Solution 1

Your stored procedure will return 7+1 different result sets. I am pretty sure that EF won't be able to handle this even if all have the same fields and all can be mapped to the entity you want. Check this to see how multiple result sets can be handled in EF5:[^]
If you use EF before v5, I suggest you use UNION between the seven select statements and, and leave nocount on. This way you will be forced to provide union compatibility between the seven selections.
