Trying to pass an array of stings into a PL/SQL package. I get the following error:

Error 3001
Arguments are of the wrong type, out of acceptable range or in conflict with one another.

Package Declaration:
Create or replace WriteSchedByArray
IS
TYPE my_Array IS varray(400) OF VARCHAR2(200);
PROCEDURE MassWriteSched(
                          SchedArray IN my_Array,
                          PercentDone OUT NUMBER
                          );
END WriteSchedByArray;


VB Code::: (ConnO is Open)
  Dim p1 As New ADODB.Parameter
  Dim p2 As New ADODB.Parameter
  Dim cCmd As ADODB.Command
  Dim y As Integer
 y = -1
   Set cCmd = New ADODB.Command
    With cCmd
      .CommandText = "schedule.writeschedbyarray.massWritesched"
      .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
       .ActiveConnection = ConnO

*** Error is here ***
      Set p1 = .CreateParameter("ary", adArray, adParamInput, 400, arySchd(0))
*** Error is here ***

       Set p2 = .CreateParameter("PercentDone", adInteger, adParamOutput)
       .Parameters.Append p1
       .Parameters.Append p2
       .Execute


Any suggestions?

I think Oracle varray index start with 1 , not 0 , different from all other programming languages.

try to change that line to this:
Set p1 = .CreateParameter("ary", adArray, adParamInput, 400, arySchd(1))
0

I think this problem popped up before in this forum.
I found out that Passing VB array to pl/sql stored procedure does not appear to be supported.
The workaround is pass  a comma-delimited string to pl/sql stored procedure and inside pl/sql stored procedure, of course, you have to have a parsing mechanism to handle it.

you can search this site to find the solution.
