hi All,

I am trying to read a file in my PL/SQL Program, it opens the File and reading first two lines but after that suddenly goes to the Exception part (invalid File_type). Pl tell me how to resolve this Problem.
File is being opened as below-

vInHandle := utl_file.fopen('ORALOAD', 'test.txt', 'R', 3000);

You do not follow posting guidelines:
You have have source code & you do no post code that fails & expect us to debug your unseen source code. WHY?
Since you do not know the answer. Why do you expect us to have any answer?

Can YOU debug code you can not see?????????????????

I can not debug unseen code & it appears you can not debug code you can see.

In addition copy and paste the execution with error message.
"invalid file type" is not in the exceptions listed in utl_file documantation http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/appdev.102/b14258/u_file.htm#i996873.
