    PLS-00320: the declaration of the type of this expression is incomplete or malformed

    Hello All

    Working with a procedure that returns cursor. Here is sample code
    IDE : TOAD & DATABASE Oracle 10GR2

    CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE TEST AS
    TYPE OUTCURSOR IS REF CURSOR;
    PROCEDURE GETLIST (
    P_PARAMOUTPUT OUT OUTCURSOR,
    P_PARAMINPUT IN INTEGER);
    END TEST;
    /
    CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE BODY TEST AS
    PROCEDURE GETLIST (
    P_PARAMOUTPUT OUT OUTCURSOR,
    P_PARAMINPUT IN INTEGER) IS
    MYCURSOR OUTCURSOR;
    BEGIN
    DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE ('TEST' || P_PARAMINPUT);

    OPEN MYCURSOR
    FOR 'select * from eventtypes';
    END GETLIST;
    END TEST;

    When i execute this procedure i am getting error of
    "PLS-00320: the declaration of the type of this expression is incomplete or malformed"

    When i see code through TOAD i see new variable P_PARAMOUTPUT_row P_PARAMOUTPUT%ROWTYPE;
    added of ROWTYPE thats causing the problem

    CODE FROM TOAD
    ================
    DECLARE
    P_PARAMOUTPUT TEST.OUTCURSOR;
    P_PARAMOUTPUT_row P_PARAMOUTPUT%ROWTYPE;
    P_PARAMINPUT NUMBER;
    BEGIN
    P_PARAMINPUT := 9;
    DAE_ADMIN.TEST.GETLIST ( P_PARAMOUTPUT, P_PARAMINPUT );
    COMMIT;
    END;

    if i remove " P_PARAMOUTPUT_row P_PARAMOUTPUT%ROWTYPE;" this line its not throwing any error same time i am not getting results.

    Any hints to solve this issue.
