Hi All,
        Table data type exists on a Remote Database. How can I acess this in my local database through PL/SQL.
        Example  In Remote Database:

 CREATE OR REPLACE
          TYPE ABC
          AS TABLE OF TEST.info

         CREATE OR REPLACE
TYPE info
AS OBJECT
(                                  
   x number,
    y varchar2(115),
   STATIC FUNCTION Construct RETURN info
)

CREATE OR REPLACE
TYPE BODY info IS
   STATIC FUNCTION CONSTRUCT RETURN  info  IS
   BEGIN
     RETURN info(null,null);
   END;
END;


How can I acess "ABC" type on my local database. I have created an synonym on the remote database and have execute privilages. I have created the DBlink on my local database.  When I declare it in my local database I will get PLS-00331
illegal reference. Can you let me know what I am missing.

Thanks,
cavaturu

You have to define the same type on the local database completely independantly of the remote database.  You cannot refer to remote objects via DBlink to do the definition.  And, of course it has to be defined identically.

Even with all that, it still may not work but give that a try.

synonyms on objects doesn't work ! you allways need to use object owner's name to access the object.
