Hello,

I have a proc that keeps giving me errors. I reduced it to 2 lines but still can't figure out the problem... can't be that hard but I just can't see what could possibly be wrong!

Package Specification

CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE TEST123 AS

    PROCEDURE TEST1(xcursor OUT SYS_REFCURSOR, xstring OUT VARCHAR2);
        
END TEST123;
/


Package Body

CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE BODY TEST123 AS
    
    PROCEDURE TEST1(xcursor OUT SYS_REFCURSOR, xstring OUT VARCHAR2)
    
    AS BEGIN
        open xcursor for SELECT 'one banana' as abc from dual; 
        xstring := 'yellow';       
    END TEST1;
         
END TEST123;
/


Error:

ORA-06550: line 1, column 29:
PLS-00103: Encountered the symbol ";" when expecting one of the following:

   . ( ) , * @ % & | = - + < / > at in is mod remainder not
   range rem => .. <an exponent (**)> <> or != or ~= >= <= <>
   and or like LIKE2_ LIKE4_ LIKEC_ as between from using ||
   indicator multiset member SUBMULTISET_

The symbol ", was inserted before ";" to continue.



Any help is much appreciated!

Works for me too (demo code would be identical to LittleFoot's so no point in posting it)

No errors on 10 XE either.
Please post your sqlplus session, so we can see exactly where it goes wrong.
By the looks of the mentioning of "line 1" it could be the call to the package instead of the package creation

[Edit: typo]

I am almost certain you are not creating this package using sql*plus client. Check this link

If it is of no help to you then google it.
