I need some help with objects. My object is as follows:
type myrctype is ref cursor return ACCOUNT%ROWTYPE;
In my PL/SQL function I have a statement like this.
open rc for select * from account;
It then selects everything from account and returns it. My problem is how to display the results in SQL Plus. I do something like the following but it doesn't work:
x := myfunction();
It works fine without the dbms_output statement. I want to display the results. Can anyone help me with this?

Before dbms_output.put_line will output to the screen, you need to execute the SQL*Plus command 'set serveroutput on'

I already have that set. It still doesn't work.

In that case, I wonder if it is to do with the data type of the variable x - put_line will only write character strings, so try making a character string (if neccessary by concatenating the individual elements of x, using to_char where neccessary on numerics and dates).
