Once a ref cursor is declared with a package specification means it has global scope .

ans since your procedure inside the package has an OUT parameter it can't be executed from SQL pronpt.

For that u need to write an anonymous block.

You can view the result in the cursor as follows in sql prompt.

VARIABLE io_cursor refcursor;
Execute package_name.procedure_name(:io_cursor);
print io_cursor;

(hope this will be useful for others because you must be an expert by now.)

Try this:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  3. ref_cur SYS_REFCURSOR;
  4. e_name VARCHAR2(100);
  5. salary NUMBER;
  6. dept_no NUMBER:
  7. BEGIN
  8. ref_use.ref_pro (20,ref_cur);
  9. LOOP
  10. EXIT WHEN ref_cur%NOTFOUND;
  11. FETCH ref_cur INTO e_name,salary,dept_no;
  12. DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE(e_name||','||salary||','||dept_no);
  13. END LOOP;
  14. END;
