RE: Utl_file and OPENVMS

On unix, multiple entries in the init.ora file results in the last entry being the only valid value (i.e. last time variable is set). I tested below and only dir3 is listed as a utl_file_dir parameter. But if you comma delimit them w/ 1 instance of the variable then all dir's are listed. Maybe NT is different, fortunately never had to support Oracle on NT :).

> utl_file_dir = D:\directory name1
> utl_file_dir = D:\directory name2
> utl_file_dir = D:\directory name3

The multiple lines shown are actually the documented method for doing this.

The single line with comma delimited entries may also work, though I'm not sure about it.

i believe its

utl_file_dir=dir1,dir2,dir3,...

in your example, dir 3 would be the only valid dir.

hth,

>>> SXBaswan_at_dcss.com 10/01/02 12:53PM >>> Make sure you have the directory name entry covered in INIT.ORA

e.g.

utl_file_dir = D:\directory name1
utl_file_dir = D:\directory name2
utl_file_dir = D:\directory name3

You need one entry per directory that you want to write to using UTL_FILE Package

Hope this helps

Shiva

the vms user oracle needs rights to the directory.

>>> RROGERS_at_galottery.org 09/30/02 10:53AM >>> 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:
