Hello friends   

I have a problem with UTL_File under Oracle 9.2i there - operating system Windows 2000 Professional.   

Following: I have a procedure in a Package, that reads from an Utl_File and also passes out something into an Utl_File again. Until this Package as well as this procedure perfectly worked two weeks ago. Then however I had a Crash on my computer, I had to install everything again. From this time works my Package as well as procedure no longer. Although is all right, in the Init.I have ora file Utl_File_Dir = * put down and I have installed also the Utl-Package, the corresponding User the right given and nevertheless I can access my corresponding Utl-Fileses no longer. Already with the OPEN of the file, I receive a mistake and it becomes said that the file-name unknown is. Has somebody of you an idea what there can be wrong??. I think, that something doesn't work as right as it in the system should, because as said, the procedure perfectly ran before the Crash. Is grateful for each help.
