Solution

A simple option is to return refcursor; you don’t have to declare any type for that.

Here’s an example based on Scott’s sample schema. Function returns all rows from the EMP table whose DEPTNO column matches value passed as function’s IN parameter.

SQL> create or replace function f_test (par_deptno in number)
  2    return sys_refcursor
  3  is
  4    rc sys_refcursor;
  5  begin
  6    open rc for select * from emp
  7                where deptno = par_deptno;
  8    return rc;
  9  end;
 10  /

Function created.

SQL> select f_test(10) from dual;

F_TEST(10)
