Getting ORA-01000 error when all statements and result sets are closed

I am getting ORA-01000 error, although I have properly closed all the statements and result sets. Also OPEN_CURSOR is set to 500. I am using Oracle 8.1.7. Please help!

Check your code again; you may still have cursors and/or result sets that are not being closed. You can use this query to view the number of open cursors for a given user ("SCOTT" in this example):
select o.sid, osuser, machine, count(*) num_curs 
from v$open_cursor o, v$session s 
where s.username = 'SCOTT' and o.sid=s.sid 
group by o.sid, osuser, machine 
order by num_curs desc;
You can also see the SQL associated with open cursors for a given session (identified by session ID [SID] from the above query results):
select q.sql_text 
from v$open_cursor o, v$sql q 
where q.hash_value=o.hash_value and o.sid = <sid>;
If you are able to verify that no cursors or result sets are being left open, you must increase the value of OPEN_CURSORS in your initialization parameter file, then shut down and start up the database instance for the change to take effect.
