If you use callproc() we could probably help you.

Don't forget that Zope will also cache results from the database as indeed  
the ODBC driver may. You should really try this using a single connection  
call the procedure + get the results if possible
if not call the results with an additional query
run the query that uses the results of stored procedure.

You can do all this in a single ExternalMethod.
