Microsoft SQL Server generates stored procedures calls that cannot be executed in MySQL. The resulting query looks as '{?=call "my_proc;1(?,?)}'.

How to repeat:
Create a linked MySQL server in MSSQL. Try to call a stored procedure using T-SQL syntax referring the linked server name as follows:

exec MYSQL_LINKED...my_proc 1,2

Suggested fix:
parse the query and transform {?=call "my_proc;1(?,?)} into call my_proc(?,?)

Posted by developer:
Attempted to re-verify the issue with the most recent version of Connector/ODBC 5.3.7 and MS SQL Server 2014.
It looks that the initial approach to the problem was not correct.
The correct T-SQL syntax for the stored procedures on the linked server would be as follows:

 1. If a procedure returns result-set:


 2. If a procedure does not return result-set (it can be used with procedures returning
    result-sets as well, but 1 cannot be used without the result set):

    exec('call my_insert_proc(13)') at MYSQL_LINKED_SERVER;

It worked correctly both ways.
