Hi all,

I have a directory object created in one environment and the path looks like '/u00/dev1/test'.

there is one more subdirectory under like '/u00/dev1/test/test1'.

i want to access a file in test1 location.

when i use utl_file.fgetattr('/u00/dev1/test/test1',.....)

i get error 'ORA-29280: invalid directory path'

is there another way i could access the subdirectory using UTL_FILE package.

Thanks,
Shivaram

I believe you need to change your init.ora file to include whatever paths you want to use in UTL_FILE

If you created a DIRECTORY object in the database for '/u00/dev1/test', then you should create a separate DIRECTORY object for it's subdirectory '/u00/dev1/test/test1'.

It is recommended to not use UTL_FILE_DIR.
