OutputData: Output Data for SQL Stored Procedure: Class Generator


OutputData: generates an OutputData Object that captures the information about the data frame that needs to be returned after the execution of the R function embedded into the stored procedure. This object must be created if the R function is returning a named list, where one of the items in the list is a data frame. The return list can contain at most one data frame.





A character string, the name of the data frame variable.
