PL/SQL ORA-01008 : Not all variables bound

Question:  I am trying to run this pl/sql code but getting the error ORA-01008 : Not all variables bound below. Any idea what’s wrong?

ORA-01008 : Not all variables bound


myoper varchar(12);
oper varchar(12);
loti varchar(12);
prod varchar(25);
quant varchar(12);


SELECT nOperno FROM d2f_prod_0_report.factoryloops
WHERE wtflag = 'Y' ORDER BY ecdorder;




FETCH C1 INTO myoper;
SELECT operation , Lot , Product , Qty1
FROM d2f_prod_0_report.f_lot
WHERE operation = :myoper
AND Route = 'SL00.2RZS'
AND Product LIKE '%IX190%';




ORA-01008 : Not all variables bound


Answer by Edward Stoever:

The err utility shows this for the ORA-01008 error:

ORA-01008 not all variables bound

Cause: A SQL statement containing substitution variables was executed without all variables bound. All substitution variables must have a substituted value before the SQL statement is executed.

Action: In OCI, use an OBIND or OBINDN call to substitute the required values

Lots wrong here... you are attempting to use a bind variable (:myoper) that is not bound to a value.

Also, your select statement

   operation ,
   Lot ,
   Product ,
   operation = :myoper
   Route = 'SL00.2RZS'
   Product LIKE '%IX190%';

needs to "select into", because you cannot simply select like that in PL/SQL. If you think about it, it makes sense; if you don't select into, or open a cursor so that the values can be of use, then you are just selecting to waste time, and that will not compile.
