Pls-00363 Expression Cannot Be Used As An Assignment Target Online

When I'm Trying to connect with Oracle Stored Procedure and getting the Following Error:

My Stored Procedure is declared like the Following :

PROCEDURE spSearchBCLClaimsArchive

    (picClaimNumber            IN CLOB ,

     pivUserName               IN VARCHAR2,

     pivFileName               IN VARCHAR2,

     povStatus                 OUT  VARCHAR2,

     povErrorMessage         OUT VARCHAR2,

     pioProcessID              IN  NUMBER,

     poRefCurResults            OUT SYS_REFCURSOR) IS

The Stored Procedure is running successfully in the back-end:

According to my understanding ORA-06550 Error most Probably comes due to wrong combination of "IN","OUT" and "IN OUT" parameters of Stored Procedure. Can anyone tell me the right set of parameters to use for Crystal Reports. Please correct me if i am wrong?


1. I Tried with various Connections like OLE DB,ORACLE SERVER (Native Oracle)

2. I used CLOB in Stored Procedure to display up-to 200 Claim numbers. - Will it Work in Crystal Reports 2011

IT would be great if anyone provide any document link about the "limitationsof Crystal Reports 2011"- Especially with Oracle Stored Procedure
