I've been using SQL Server for the last 5 years, and just getting back to using Oracle. I want to have test new and altered stored procedures from TOAD. With SQL Server, using Query Analyzer you can call:
exec storedprocName param1, param2

an the recordset is displayed. I recall that this can't be done in TOAD, that you have create a Cusor and line print to view the resultset. I tried creating test SQL but it is erroring out. Here is my code:

DECLARE rpt_cursor PK_TEST.refcur_Output;
resultset rpt_cursor%rowtype;
BEGIN
PK_TEST.sp_sel_status_by_id(1, 'Y', rpt_cursor);
FETCH rpt_cursor into resultset;
WHILE rpt_cursor%found LOOP
dbms_output.putline(resultset.site);
FETCH rpt_cursor into resultset;
END LOOP;
END;

It errors on the second line when I use %rowtype. Error message:
ORA-06550: line 2, column 13:
PLS-00320: the declaration of the type of this expression is incomplete or malformed
ORA-06550: line 2, column 13:
PL/SQL: Item ignored
ORA-06550: line 5, column 25:
PLS-00320: the declaration of the type of this expression is incomplete or malformed
ORA-06550: line 5, column 3:
PL/SQL: SQL Statement ignored
ORA-06550: line 7, column 27:
PLS-00320: the declaration of the type of this expression is incomplete or malformed
ORA-06550: line 7, column 7:
PL/SQL: Statement ignored
ORA-06550: line 8, column 28:
PLS-00320: the declaration of the type of this expression is incomplete or malformed
ORA-06550: line 8, column 6:
PL/SQL: SQL Statement ignored

Does anyone know how to make this SQL work, or have a better way of Testing a Stored Procedure within TOAD? Note, I don't have TOAD debugger, and would rather not open SQL*Plus. Thanks.

I prefer to run my code from sqlplus (from within Toad using SQL Editor > Execute SQL via SQL*Plus). But this should work fine on TOAD. You might need to manually turn dbms_output on.

CREATE TABLE ABC (A  NUMBER);
insert into abc values(1);
insert into abc values(9);
insert into abc values(13);
insert into abc values(999);

CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE ref_cur_tst
IS
   CURSOR c1 IS SELECT a FROM abc;
   TYPE t_cur IS REF CURSOR RETURN c1%ROWTYPE;

   PROCEDURE get_abc (cv_cur IN OUT t_cur);
END ref_cur_tst;
/

CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE BODY ref_cur_tst
AS
   PROCEDURE get_abc (cv_cur IN OUT t_cur)
   IS
   BEGIN
      OPEN cv_cur FOR SELECT a FROM abc;
   END get_abc;
END ref_cur_tst;
/

-- (sqlplus) set serveroutput on;

DECLARE
   a       abc.a%TYPE;
   cv_c1   ref_cur_tst.t_cur;
BEGIN
   ref_cur_tst.get_abc (cv_c1);

   LOOP
      FETCH cv_c1 INTO a;
      EXIT WHEN cv_c1%NOTFOUND;
      DBMS_OUTPUT.put_line (a);
   END LOOP;
   CLOSE cv_c1;
END;

Thanks for the reply. I was looking for a solution that returns all the columns from the recordset from the stored proc. I also want to make it generic enough that I can use other stored procs without setting types per column for each proc, I'd rather just reference the row type.

That doesn't appear to have anything to do with the rowtype or Stored Procedures. Why are you referencing that page? Thanks.

It covers the question if it's possible to describe a ref cursor (weak ref cursor).

You can use the %rowtype to set up the ref cursor (strongly typed) or use a weakly typed ref cursor to handle a dynamic query. The problem seems to be that the "client" portion of the code can't describe the ref cursor format at runtime.

-- dummy cursor to get %rowtype below
-- no joins even required - it's just to get the structure
   CURSOR c1 IS SELECT a.ename, b.deptname FROM emp a, dept b;
   TYPE t_cur IS REF CURSOR RETURN c1%ROWTYPE;


-- or just use emp%rowtype to match whole table structure (strong ref cursor).
TYPE t_cur IS REF CURSOR RETURN emp%ROWTYPE;


-- or just define a weak ref cursor.
TYPE t_cur IS REF CURSOR;
