Hello David,

First, Thanks for your response.

> What could those 'actions' be?

I have to remove the exported files after having transferred then on our server.
The transfer is made by a shell script which connects to the remote server where are localized the exported dump files. Then after transferring, I have to clean the transferred dump files.

The distant server where are localized the dump files can be accessed via SSH only with a specific user.

In my case, it is impossible because modifying the umask would have effect on all output files generated by the user Oracle. The database is critical and the DBA does not permit this action.

I will work on this way.

Thanks a lot.
