using System.Data.SqlClient;
public class clsSqlCallStoredProcedure
    static SqlConnection con;

        cmd.Parameters["@Ending_Date"].Value = "1/1/2000";
            SqlDataReader reader = cmd.ExecuteReader();
            while (reader.Read())
                Console.WriteLine("{0} - {1:c}", reader.GetDateTime(0), reader.GetDecimal(2));

        static void Main(string[] args)
            //clsSqlConnectionConnectionString mySqlConnectionConnectionString = new clsSqlConnectionConnectionString();
            //clsSqlSelect mySqlSelect = new clsSqlSelect();
            //clsSqlParametersInsert mySqlParametersInsert = new clsSqlParametersInsert();
