PLS-00306: wrong number or types of arguments in call to 'GET_COUNT_OF_DNIS1'

I,
I have written this simple SP to pass one value to the SP and return three values.
The procedure is as below:

create or replace procedure get_count_of_dnis1
(
dnis_in_out in out varchar,
scr_out out varchar,
no_cnt out varchar)

As
begin
select count(*) into no_cnt from routing where dnis1 like dnis_in_out or dnis2 like dnis_in_out;
select menu_script into scr_out from routing where dnis1 like dnis_in_out or dnis2 like dnis_in_out;
dbms_output.put_line(scr_out);
dbms_output.put_line(no_cnt);
end;
/
the procedure compiles OK but when I try to run the procedure like execute get_count_of_dnis1(0870321321);

I get the following error.

ORA-06550: line 1, column 7:
PLS-00306: wrong number or types of arguments in call to 'GET_COUNT_OF_DNIS1'
ORA-06550: line 1, column 7:
PL/SQL: Statement ignored

I am using the parameter passed in to SP in a query in the body of procedure. Any ideas why this is happening ?

since the SP has 3 OUT arguments, then this line:

execute get_count_of_dnis1(0870321321);


is clearly in error, EXACTLY as the error massage indicates.  You need to supply THREE variables as the arguments of the line:

execute get_count_of_dnis1(Var1, Var2, var3);

here var1, var2 and var3 will RECIEVE the output values from the stored procedure.

sorry, misread the SP declaration.  YOu need to supply the variables to hold the two vales that are declared as PURE OUT paramaters:

execute get_count_of_dnis1('0870321321', Var2, Var3);

assuming that '0870321321' is the correct value for dnis_in_out.

I tried your recommendation but here is the error message I get

SQL> exec get_count_of_dnis1('0870321321',scr_out,no_cnt);
BEGIN get_count_of_dnis1('0870321321',scr_out,no_cnt); END;

ORA-06550: line 1, column 39:
PLS-00201: identifier 'SCR_OUT' must be declared

If the procedure is having the Out parameter u can't run from the sql prompt.

For this what u have to do is

u have to declare the two values. ie.

declare
scr_out varchar2(20);
no_cnt varhcar2(20);
begin
get_count_of_gnis1('0870321321',scr_out,no_cnt);
dbms_output.put_line(scr_out);
dbms_output.put_line(no_cnt);
end;
/

excute this block u will get the ansower.
