Error in calling store procedure using SQLPLUS in unix

Hi,
I am facing the following error in calling the stored procedure from SQLPLUS in unix environment.

Code:
SQL> set serveroutput on
SQL> var store number;
SQL> exec test_proc(:store, 200);
BEGIN TEST_PROC(:store, 200); END;
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01858: a non-numeric character was found where a numeric was expected
ORA-06512: at "TEST_PROC", line 111
ORA-06512: at line 1

The definition of the stored procedure is :
Code:
procedure test_proc(
  store out number,
  key number)     
is
declare
...
begin
...
end test_proc;

Please tell me how should I pass a numeric value here in order to make this procedure run.

Thanks
Pradeep

You should check that line (or provide the entire code).

there can be an error anywhere else in the code.... before line 111. if ur mising any brackets, paranthesis or some small syntax error u will have to check that very carefully.

i am definately a noob in unix as compared to radoulov. but i like sarcasm ;p

thanks.

I suppose I was not clear Smilie

My statement was quite inaccurate.

As you correctly pointed out, the error could be anywhere before (and including) line 111.

Sorry for the confusion.

radoulov i understood what u said.. i was just kidding around. sorry about me kidding.
there is no sense of humor here Smilie
[take it as a small joke] sorry again
