Stored Procedure returning multiple values

129 New Member
Can anyone help?

Ive created the below stored procedure to allow an input parameter of post code to be entered to display properties which have this post code. The procedure creates fine but because i have two properties with the post code 'S1 4SG', the execution of the procedure fails, it gives the error:

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01422: exact fetch returns more than requested number of rows
ORA-06512: at "CBRAID.PROC_PR OPSEARCH", line 19
ORA-06512: at line 1

Im sure procedures can return more than one value, so does anyone know why its doesnt work or what i can do to make it work?

Below is the procedure and also how I execute and view it in the notepad file attached.

That is because the SQl statment is returning more than one record.

Try to use cursor.

I am new to PL/SQL, could you show me the syntax of how the cursor should work with the stored procedure?

Here is the code: -

  3. (v_postcode         IN     Property.PostCode%TYPE,
  4. v_propertyid         OUT     Property.PropertyID%TYPE,

If you simply want to display the values using DBMS_OUTPUT why using all those OUT parameters ?

i have executed by trying a test procedure and i got the output :)
create or replace procedure test(p_name varchar2, p_type out varchar2)
cursor c1 is select tabtype from tab where tname = p_name;
open c1;
fetch c1 into p_type;
exit when c1%notfound;
dbms_output.put _line('The type is : ' || p_type);
end loop;
close c1;

and the calling procedure as

SQL> declare
2 p_name varchar2(20) := 'TEST1';
3 p_type varchar2(20);
4 begin
5 test(p_name, p_type);
6 end;
7 /
The type is : TABLE

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

can you please conpare your procedure with these two?
