Execute SQL statement from table in other schema

I want to execute SQL statements that use other schema tables from my stored procedure. The stored procedure is in one schema and the table is in the other schema. I am getting "ORA-01031: insufficient privileges" error. Please suggest how to execute statement from a table from a stored procedure of another user. Both the two users are in the same Oracle instance. The database is Oracle 10g.

You have two schemas on the same Oracle instance: schemaA and schemaB. You have a procedure called proc1 in schemaA and you have a table emp on schemaB that you want to read from schemaA. Perform the following two steps:

Step 1: Log onto schemaB. Grant references and select on emp to schemaA as follows:

 grant references, select on emp to schemaA;

Step 2: While logged in as schemaB, create a public synonym as follows:

 create PUBLIC synonym emp for emp;

Now log onto schemaA and create proc1, using emp from schemaB as:

create or replace procedure proc1

v_emp_no number;


     select emp_no
     into v_emp_no
     from emp
     where emp_no = 1;
