[Quoted] This helps. I guess I was hoping not to pass all 20+ parameters that this procedure accepts.

As a function, I am able to call the function passing only the parameters I need, using the named parameter method.

But in this syntax, if I omit the first parameter, I get an error.

There must be a way, say from SQLPlus, to call a procedure, and only supply the parameters you need for that call.....not all of the parameters in a positional line.......
