I creted a file in C drive named utl_anshu.txt then i write this code in sql*plus prompt

DECLARE
A UTL_FILE.FILE_TYPE;
BEGIN
A:=UTL_FILE.FOPEN('C:\','UTL_ANSHU.TXT','W');
UTL_FILE.PUT_LINE(A,'THIS IS ANSHUMAN SINGH RAJPUT');
FOR AA IN 5..10 LOOP
UTL_FILE.PUTF(A,'THIS IS %S\N',AA);
END LOOP;
UTL_FILE.FCLOSE(A);
END;

After running this program it showing an error.
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-06510: PL/SQL: unhandled user-defined exception
ORA-06512: at "SYS.UTL_FILE", line 120
ORA-06512: at "SYS.UTL_FILE", line 204
ORA-06512: at line 4

what's wrong with that program.
