That's nice, I don't have SQLPlus, I have SQLDeveloper. The lines that were pasted in were of the type:



It didn't like it when I tried that in a SQL window. I opened up and pasted in the commands by hand, and it wasn't happy with that either. (Did I mention that I'm not so good with this application nor Oracle, but that everyone else was out today?) The files there started with code like:

set echo on
execute procedure_name ('parameter1', 'parameter2');
