can someone give me pl/sql block of code which can raise this exception for an example ?

I tried to raise this ( by trying to access some element of a automatically null collection ) but i am getting

value of sqlcode:-6531
value of sqlerrm:ORA-06531: Reference to uninitialized collection

instead of COLLECTION_IS_NULL exception.

Thanks

FYI:
COLLECTION_IS_NULL is the oracle predefined exception for error code : 6531

ok..

I got the answer because the exception was over ridden by a local one and so i had to say something like

standard.collection_is_null to get it.

Thanks
