I get the following error when I run the procedure below:

PL/SQL: ORA-00917:missing comma

All my commas are in place so I don't know why I get the error.
CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE SP_INSERT_DUE_INFO
(
    CASE_NUMBER IN DATE_DUE_INFO_TBL.CASE_NUMBER%TYPE,
    DUE_DATE  IN DATE_DUE_INFO_TBL.DUE_DATE%TYPE,
    DESCRIPTION IN DATE_DUE_INFO_TBL.DESCRIPTION%TYPE
)

AS
BEGIN

    INSERT INTO DATE_DUE_INFO_TBL
            (
                CASE_NUMBER,
                DUE_DATE,
                DESCRIPTION,
                ID_KEY      
            )    
    VALUES
            (
                CASE_NUMBER,
                DUE_DATE,
                DESCRIPTION,
                DATEDUEINFO_SEQ.nextval FROM DUAL
            );
            
        COMMIT;
END SP_INSERT_DUE_INFO;

Remove FROM dual in values and run the code:

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE SP_INSERT_DUE_INFO
(
    CASE_NUMBER IN DATE_DUE_INFO_TBL.CASE_NUMBER%TYPE,
    DUE_DATE  IN DATE_DUE_INFO_TBL.DUE_DATE%TYPE,
    DESCRIPTION IN DATE_DUE_INFO_TBL.DESCRIPTION%TYPE
)

AS
BEGIN

    INSERT INTO DATE_DUE_INFO_TBL
            (
                CASE_NUMBER,
                DUE_DATE,
                DESCRIPTION,
                ID_KEY      
            )    
    VALUES
            (
                CASE_NUMBER,
                DUE_DATE,
                DESCRIPTION,
                DATEDUEINFO_SEQ.nextval  
            );
           
        COMMIT;
END SP_INSERT_DUE_INFO;

Didn't think you needed the "FROM DUAL" in an insert statement
