    This is just one of many reasons why to avoid using VARRAY datatype.
    VARRAY only exists within a PL/SQL procedure, so you can not test using TOAD the typical way.
    So either test using sqlplus or change the datatype.

    What advantage does VARRAY provide?
    Do the pros outweigh the cons for VARRAY?
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
