what tool are you using that has a query window?

toad, pl/sql developer, sql developer, etc.  will allow you to run an anonymous pl/sql block.

something like this...

    v_out number;





Open in new window

Also, dbms_output.put_line does not work.
ORA-00900: invalid SQL statement
So I try  set serveroutput on;
ORA-00922: missing or invalid option

if your procedure is in a package you need to prefix the procedure name with the package name.
similarly, if the procedure/package is in another schema and you don't have a synonym you have to prefix it with the schema name too.

and finally, if you don't have privileges to execute the procedure, it will also return that message.

"set serveroutput on"  is a sqlplus command,  you will use dbms_output.enable
