List,
 I have a package that creates files on the server. The directory location and file name are obtained from tables in oracle. The procedure works as designed on Novell 7.3.4 and no changes were needed when the database way loaded on Linux Oracle 8.1.7. I am trying to move the database from the Novell to an OPENVMS Oracle 8.1.7 server and I can't get the package to write the files to the OS directory.  The package is created by the Oracle user DTSUSER and executed by DTSUSER. There is no OPENVMS user DTSUSER. The sysadmin assures me that the permissions are correct to write to the directory.
I have place a Dbms_output in the package to display the directory information and it looks correct.
 Is there anything different that has to be done to an OPENVMS server that will allow a package to write to a directory using the Utl_File package?

Listing from the Oracle tables:

Thanks, Any assistance would be appreciated. I am just getting in to the OPENVMS OS.
