I have a procedure (MySQLStatement IN varchar2,
MyReturnCursor OUT returncursor);

NOTE : I have defined the return cursor as ref cursor and it works.

In my procedure, I need to manipulate the input string which is nothing but a select statement. I create a local variable MyNewSQLStatement in which I put this new massaged sqlstatement and then, do the following :

OPEN MyReturnCursor FOR MyNewSqlStatement;

IT FAILS !!

If I say
OPEN MyReturnCursor FOR
SELECT * FROM MYTABLE WHERE ID = 1243; -- works

But If I say

MyNewSQLStatement = 'SELECT * FROM MYTABLE WHERE ID = 1243;';
OPEN MyReturnCursor FOR MyNewSqlStatement; -- does not work. I tried && also.

Please help!!
Thanks in advance.

what error you are getting?. remove semicolon in your sql statement.
try this:

MyNewSQLStatement = 'SELECT * FROM MYTABLE WHERE ID = 1243';
OPEN MyReturnCursor FOR MyNewSqlStatement;
