In Pro*C I want to vary the name of the sequence from which nextval is taken. The following works:

strcpy(dyn_sql, "SELECT ");
strcat(dyn_sql, acct_seq);
strcat(dyn_sql, ".nextval INTO :refno_03 FROM dual");
EXEC SQL at supdb EXECUTE IMMEDIATE :dyn_sql;

However, since this will be done many times, I want to prepare the statement and then supply the sequence name. I tried this:

strcpy(dyn_sql, "SELECT :seq_name");
strcat(dyn_sql, ".nextval INTO :refno_03 FROM dual");
EXEC SQL at supdb PREPARE S FROM :dyn_sql;
EXEC SQL at supdb EXECUTE S USING :acct_seq;

but got this error on the prepare:
ORA-22806: An attempt was made to extract an attribute from an item that is neither an object nor a REF

Please advise how I can prepare the statement.

Thanks!
