Hi there, Merry Christmas. 

I got an "MySQL [ODBC5.3(w) Driver][mysqld-5.7.31-log]Invalid parameter type"error. 
The stored procedure is fairly simple:

PROCEDURE `sp_load_visit`(
IN _nid char(18)
SET @query = concat("
    select visiting_date, method, visiting_details from tbl_visit where visiting_customer=? order by visiting_date asc;
PREPARE stmt FROM @query;
SET @_nid = _nid;
EXECUTE stmt USING @_nid;

The VBA code looks like this: 
        sConnString = "Driver={MySQL ODBC 5.3 Unicode Driver};Server=;Database=jkydb1;Uid=agent;pwd=Jky4008389909!;Connect Timeout=500;OPTION=16427"

        myConn.ConnectionString = sConnString
        command.ActiveConnection = myConn
        command.CommandText = "sp_load_visit"
        command.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
        command.CommandTimeout = 10
        command.NamedParameters = True
        command.Prepared = True
        Set prm = command.CreateParameter("_nid", adChar, adParamInput, 18, cell_customer_nid.value)

        command.Parameters.Append prm

        Set rs = command.Execute

the error pops every single time. 

How to repeat:
calling the stored procedure from above code generates the error each time on command.execute.

Hello Julie Ling,

Thank you for the bug report.
Discussed internally with Connector/ODBC developer and confirmed that this issue is not present in latest version.
Also, we don't fix bugs in old versions, don't back port bug fixes, so you need to check with latest MySQL ODBC version. So, please upgrade to MySQL ODBC 8.0 and inform us if problem still exists.
