I am trying to determine the instance name using dbms_utility.  I get following error:

PLS-00306: wrong number or types of arguments in call to 'ACTIVE_INSTANCES'

Any suggestions. Code snippet below:


TYPE instance_record is RECORD
(
       inst_number number,
      inst_name   varchar2(60)
);
     

TYPE instance_table is TABLE OF instance_record INDEX BY BINARY_INTEGER;

inst_tab instance_table;
inst_count number;

BEGIN      
 DBMS_UTILITY.ACTIVE_INSTANCES(inst_tab, inst_count);
END;
