I need assistance with being able to use a record that I have declared in a package specification in a standalone pl sql function that is currently resides under the same schema as the Package. In my function creation process, I want to use the record type that I have declared as the RETURN data type. When I attempt to do this and try and compile my function code, I receive a message indicating that my record must be declared and/or the expression is incomplete or malformed. Any assistance with this is appreciated to the extreme. This is currently on the Oracle 10G platform.
