Stored Procedure returning multiple values

129 100+
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_PROPSEARCH", 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.

This is created in PL/SQL.

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?

Hi I have incorporated a cursor into the stored procedure to return multiple values. The procedure with the cursor creates fine but it doesnt display the results in the DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE even when ive out SET SERVEROUTPUT ON. Can anybody see the problem?

Here is the code: -
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  3. (v_postcode         IN     Property.PostCode%TYPE,
  4. v_propertyid         OUT     Property.PropertyID%TYPE,
  5. v_propertytypeid     OUT     Property.PropertyTypeID%TYPE,
  6. v_houseflatnum         OUT     Property.HouseFlatNumber%TYPE,
  7. v_street         OUT     Property.Street%TYPE,
  8. v_city             OUT     Property.City%TYPE,
  9. v_county         OUT     Property.County%TYPE,
  10. v_furnished         OUT     Property.Furnished%TYPE,
  11. v_noofbedrooms         OUT     Property.NoOfBedrooms%TYPE,
  12. v_noofensuites         OUT     Property.NoOfEnSuites%TYPE,
  13. v_noofbathrooms     OUT     Property.NoOfBathrooms%TYPE,
  14. v_receptionrooms     OUT     Property.NoOfReceptionRooms%TYPE,
  15. v_propertydesc         OUT     Property.PropertyDesc%TYPE,
  16. v_available         OUT     Property.Available%TYPE)
  18. AS
  19. CURSOR Cursor_PropSearch IS
  20. SELECT PropertyID, PropertyTypeID, HouseFlatNumber, Street, City, County, Furnished, NoOfBedrooms, NoOfEnSuites, NoOfBathrooms, NoOfReceptionRooms, PropertyDesc, Available   
  21. FROM Property
  22. WHERE PostCode = v_postcode;
  24. BEGIN
  25. OPEN Cursor_PropSearch;
  27. LOOP
  28.     FETCH Cursor_PropSearch 
  29.     INTO v_propertyid, v_propertytypeid, v_houseflatnum, v_street, v_city, v_county, v_furnished, v_noofbedrooms, v_noofensuites, v_noofbathrooms, v_receptionrooms, v_propertydesc, v_available; 
  30.     EXIT WHEN Cursor_PropSearch%NOTFOUND OR 
  31.         Cursor_PropSearch%NOTFOUND IS NULL;
  34. (TO_CHAR(v_propertyid) || TO_CHAR(v_propertytypeid) || TO_CHAR(v_houseflatnum) || TO_CHAR(v_street) || TO_CHAR(v_city) || TO_CHAR(v_county) || TO_CHAR(v_furnished) || TO_CHAR(v_noofbedrooms) || TO_CHAR(v_noofensuites) || TO_CHAR(v_noofbathrooms) || TO_CHAR(v_receptionrooms) || TO_CHAR(v_propertydesc) || TO_CHAR(v_available));
  36. END LOOP;
  38. CLOSE Cursor_PropSearch;
  39. END proc_PropSearch;

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?
