The following was identified within v$sql in a database -

SQL> select parse_calls, executions, sql_text, module from v$sql   2 where sql_text like '%INTADM.MASK_DATA(:V%'   3 and module = 'POLDOC.EXE';

begin :V00001 := INTADM.MASK_DATA(:V00002,:V00003,:V00004); end; POLDOC.EXE The referenced object is a function that is parsed 2x more than it is executed. This is generated from a VB application. We have other function calls that behave similarly (i.e., 2:1 parse to execute). What would cause this statement to be parsed more than executed? Are there any options (other than removing the call) to reduce the number of parse calls relative to the executions?
