dbNextResult: Fetch next result set from an SQL script or stored procedure...

dbNextResultR Documentation

Fetch next result set from an SQL script or stored procedure (experimental)


SQL scripts (i.e., multiple SQL statements separated by ';') and stored procedures oftentimes generate multiple result sets. These generic functions provide a means to process them sequentially. dbNextResult fetches the next result from the sequence of pending results sets; dbMoreResults returns a logical to indicate whether there are additional results to process.


dbNextResult(con, ...)

a connection object (see dbConnect).


any additional arguments to be passed to the dispatched method


dbNextResult returns a result set or NULL.

dbMoreResults returns a logical specifying whether or not there are additional result sets to process in the connection.


if (mysqlHasDefault()) {
con <- dbConnect(RMySQL::MySQL(), dbname = "test", client.flag = CLIENT_MULTI_STATEMENTS)
dbWriteTable(con, "mtcars", datasets::mtcars, overwrite = TRUE)

sql <- "SELECT cyl FROM mtcars LIMIT 5; SELECT vs FROM mtcars LIMIT 5"
rs1 <- dbSendQuery(con, sql)
dbFetch(rs1, n = -1)

if (dbMoreResults(con)) {
   rs2 <- dbNextResult(con)
   dbFetch(rs2, n = -1)

dbRemoveTable(con, "mtcars")
