when i attempt to execute a stored procedure, I get a message stating that wrong number of parameters have been passed. This is my execution statement and a description of the procedure

var v_sao_pao_desc varchar2(240) ;
var v_pao_street varchar2(240) ;
var v_locality varchar2(240);
var v_town_city varchar2(60) ;
var v_county  varchar2(60);
var v_postcode varchar2(60);
var v_country varchar2(80);
var v_fuzzy_rule_id varchar2;
var o_return_code    VARCHAR2; 
    o_return_code := '  ';
var o_return_status  VARCHAR2;
var o_return_msg     VARCHAR2;
var o_address_list   XMLTYPE;
var v_seach_organisation varchar2;

execute XX_LGS_CDH_ADDRESS_PKG.FUZZY_VALIDATE_ADDRESS('&DESC','&Str','&Loc','&Town','&County','&PCode','&Country','10020', :o_return_code, :o_return_status, :o_return_msg, :o_address_list,'&Search');

Your statement:
o_return_code := '  ';

is a PL/SQL statement; it should be prefixed with an EXEC, ow wrapped in a BEGIN/END. I don't think that's your problem though.

I have never played around with XMLTYPE and bind variables. If you thought that might be the problem, you could remove the XMLTYPE from the parameter list and try it again. It wouldn't help, but it might redirect your efforts.

Also, it might not be the outer procedure. Are there any procedure calls inside FUZZY_VALIDATE_ADDRESS? It may be one of those. Can FUZZY_VALIDATE_ADDRESS be called successfully from within PL/SQL jobs? ie. Is it only when called from SQL*Plus with bind variables that it fails?

Good Luck.
