    Question ORA-06576: not a valid function or procedure name

    ORA-06576: not a valid function or procedure name

    Hi. I receive this message when I try to call a procedure that synchronize the text indexes.

    CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE SYNC_TEXT_INDEXES IS
    BEGIN
    ctx_ddl.sync_index( idx_name => 'CLI_NOMBRE_NDX');
    ctx_ddl.sync_index( idx_name => 'CLI_RAZON_SOCIAL_NDX');
    END;
    /

    This procedure run ok when I execute it since SQLPLUS with "exec sync_text_indexes", But it doesn't run ok when I call it since others applications, like TOAD with "call sync_text_indexes" or since a program in Visual Basic.

    I receive the message:
    ORA-06576: not a valid function or procedure name


    Thanks in advance.

    The user trying to execute the procedure makes a difference. See below for the problems scott has letting james execute one of scott's procedures:

    SQL>show user
    USER is "SCOTT"

    SQL> create or replace procedure println as
    2 v_stmt varchar2(30) := 'Now is the time.';
    3 begin
    4 dbms_output.put_line(v_stmt);
    5 end;
    6 /

    Procedure created.

    SQL> set serveroutput on
    SQL> exec println;
    Now is the time.

    PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

    SQL> conn james/james
    Connected.
    SQL> exec println;
    BEGIN println; END;

    SQL> conn system/manager

    SQL> grant create synonym to scott;

    Grant succeeded.

    SQL> conn scott/tiger

    Synonym created.

    I'm running this with the same user.

    Hi. I'm running the procedure with the same user. In SQlPlus and TOAD.
    But In TOAD I receive the error, and in SQlplus it runs ok.

    The user is the owner of the procedure and the owner of the tables and indexes.

    That user has privilegies on the ctx_ddl procedure. procedure of the user ctxsys.

    Thanks.

    Fernando.

    Smile thanks.

    I've seen that the problem is how I use the CALL instruction. Because any procedure that I use without parameters produce the same error.

    Example:

    SQL> create or replace procedure nothing is
    2 begin
    3 null;
    4 end;
    5 /

    Procedure created.

    SQL> call nothing;
    call nothing
    *
    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-06576: not a valid function or procedure name


    SQL> exec nothing;

    PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

    But.

    SQL> call nothing();

    Call completed.

    SQL>

    I don't know why ?

    I thought that it was a problem with my intermedia configuration.

    Thanks.

    Fernando.
