How do you call a procedure in an else statement? Is it

If .... then
....
else <procedure>?

The same as you do outside an IF statement.

Ok...but I got an error message saying that I have to declare it. Where and how do I do that?

I think this is the same error as you got in another post regarding the pre-query trigger.
You probably need a synonym and execute rights on the procedure. The procedure is owned by another user than you, right?

When all else fails, read the fine PL/SQL User's Guide and Reference as found at

That's right...the procedure is owned by someone else, but how do I create the synonym?

That would be in the documentation. Read the first topic in the forum to see where to find the docs.

I have worked with other procedures that are not owned by me and they had no synonyms and I did not have a problem executing the script. I think that it is something else. My previous post was similar and all I did was expand the size of a field. I will try that. Thanks

They may well have had public synonyms created for them.
If the procedure you want to execute is in another schema than yours, then the 3 ways of accessing it are:

1) Refer to it as Schema_name.procedure_name
2) Create a private synonym pointing to Schema_name.procedure_name.
3) Create a public synonym pointing to Schema_name.Procedure_name

Thank you so much JRowbottom. I used the first option you pointed out for executing the procedure (schema_name.procedure_name) and it worked.

Thanks again.
