Hi folks,

I'm running into a strange (at least to me) problem. I have implemented a small document management system into an existing Oracle10g database application. DMS requires copying files from one folder to another. Physical files (originals as well as copies) are located on a mapped resource. This drive is mapped by group policy so SYSTEM user which oracle service is running on "sees" that resource. Thus, copying files with utl_file.fcopy is no problem. But I cannot access any copied file with it's application. An MSExcel file won't open at all. Error message says, network drive wasn't available or file was write protected. A pdf files is opened by Adobe Reader but showing empty pages (in correct number, by the way). Network drive is available and, as far as I can see, there is no lock on any file. Original files open without problems.

Do you have any ideas on where to to closer examination?
