Does any one know if it is possible to open a reference cursor variable for a dynamically created table? Essentially,

DECLARE
TYPE cursortype IS REF CURSOR;
curvar cursortype;
BEGIN
...
OPEN curvar FOR SELECT * FROM mytable;
END;

where mytable is known only during runtime and unknown at compile time.

You'll have to use DBMS_SQL to use a dynamically created table and you use CURSOR instead of REF CURSOR in block statements.
