public synonyms and oracle packages

Hi,

I have 2 schemas in an oracle database. (SchemaA and SchemaB). I have a procedure (Proc1) in a package (Pkg1) in SchemaB that I wish to execute from a C# application. I only want to log in to SchemaA in the application. I created a public synonym for Pkg1 as follows in SchemaB:
CREATE PUBLIC SYNONYM pkg1 FOR Pkg1;

We use toad as the oracle development environment. When I log in to SchemaA, I can execute Proc1 in SchemaB without problems. However when I execute it from the C# application, I get the following error:
ORA-06550: line 1, column 15: PLS-00201: identifier 'pkg1.proc1' must be declared
ORA-06550: line 1, column 7: PL/SQL: Statement ignored

Does anybody know how to fix this and why it works in Toad?

Thanks

Make sure that you specify the schema when creating a public synonym:

CREATE PUBLIC SYNONYM pkg1 FOR SchemaB.Pkg1;

Also, ensure that your user has execute privilege on Pkg1

GRANT EXECUTE on SchemaB.Pkg1 to UserY;
