I'm trying to create a procedure that generates a text file using Spool, but an error is occurring when I try to execute the procedure.

Please, help me?!

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE EXPORT_FILE (VAR1 IN VARCHAR2, VAR2 IN VARCHAR2)AS

--VAR1 --> TIPO DO SEPARADOR
--VAR2 --> DATA DE PESQUISA

BEGIN

EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'TRUNCATE TABLE FILE';

INSERT INTO FILE 
SELECT VAR2||VAR1||
       COL1||VAR1||
       COL2||VAR1||
       COL3||VAR1 AS STRING
FROM TABLE1
WHERE COL4 >= VAR2;

EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 
'
set heading off
set trimspool on 
set linesize 1520
set pagesize 50000
set echo off
set feedback off

col file_name new_value file1;
SELECT ''EXP_.txt'' as file_name from dual;

spool C:\TEST\&file1

SELECT * FROM FILE;
';

END EXPORT_FILE;

Another way I tried it was by creating a .sql file containing only the Spool code and then calling the procedure with @.

Spool file:

set heading off
set trimspool on 
set linesize 1520
set pagesize 50000
set echo off
set feedback off

col file_name new_value file1;
SELECT 'EXP_.txt' as file_name from dual;

spool C:\TEST\&file1

SELECT * FROM FILE;

Procedure:

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE EXPORT_FILE (VAR1 IN VARCHAR2, VAR2 IN VARCHAR2)AS

--VAR1 --> TIPO DO SEPARADOR
--VAR2 --> DATA DE PESQUISA

BEGIN

EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'TRUNCATE TABLE FILE';

INSERT INTO FILE 
SELECT VAR2||VAR1||
       COL1||VAR1||
       COL2||VAR1||
       COL3||VAR1 AS STRING
FROM TABLE1
WHERE COL4 >= VAR2;

EXECUTE IMMEDIATE '@C:\FOLDER\query.sql'

END EXPORT_FILE;

SET, COL, SPOOL, @ are SQL*Plus commands not SQL or PL/SQL statements, you cannot use them in a procedure.
EXECUTE IMMEDIATE is a PL/SQL command which sends a SQL command to the SQL engine.

Also always post your Oracle version, with 4 decimals, as most often solution depends on it.

Also when you report an error, copy and paste your SQL*plus session, the WHOLE session.

Do you have any suggestions for extracting a text file from Oracle with procedure?

What do you mean by "extracting a text file", it is not clear what you want to do in the end, not what you are trying to do to implement it which is clearly a dead-end.

Sorry if I'm writing something wrong, I'm using a translator to type here.

I need to extract a query from Oracle and send it to a text file.

For example.

The result of "select column1||';'||column2 from table;" Go to a .txt file

So why not just call your script from SQL*Plus?

Read up on the UTL_FILE procedure it will do exactly what you want to do with one restriction. The flat file produced can ONLY be on the database server.

Thanks, I'm browsing the internet about examples of UTL_File .. I'm just having trouble letting it inside the procedure..
Apparently this is correct procedure, however I execute and do not save anything in the folder..

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE EXPORT_NEW(VAR1 IN VARCHAR2, VAR2 IN VARCHAR2) AS

    exit_file                    UTL_File.File_Type;
    Cursor Cur_Linha is SELECT COL1 FROM DWATANA WHERE ROWNUM <= 10;
 
BEGIN
    exit_file := UTL_File.Fopen('DIR_BCF','test.txt', 'W');
    For Reg_Line in Cur_linha Loop
        UTL_File.Put_Line(exit_file, Reg_line.COL1);
    End Loop;
    UTL_File.Fclose(exit_file);
    Dbms_Output.Put_Line('Arquivo gerado com sucesso.');
    
EXCEPTION
      WHEN UTL_FILE.INVALID_OPERATION THEN
               Dbms_Output.Put_Line('Operação inválida no arquivo.');
               UTL_File.Fclose(exit_file);
      WHEN UTL_FILE.WRITE_ERROR THEN
               Dbms_Output.Put_Line('Erro de gravação no arquivo.');
               UTL_File.Fclose(exit_file);
      WHEN UTL_FILE.INVALID_PATH THEN
               Dbms_Output.Put_Line('Diretório inválido.');
               UTL_File.Fclose(exit_file);
      WHEN UTL_FILE.INVALID_MODE THEN
               Dbms_Output.Put_Line('Modo de acesso inválido.');
               UTL_File.Fclose(exit_file);
      WHEN Others THEN
               Dbms_Output.Put_Line('Problemas na geração do arquivo.');
               UTL_File.Fclose(exit_file);
END EXPORT_NEW;

have you setup the directory object DIR_BCF in your database pointing to a folder ON THE DATABASE SERVER? Has the schema your running the code in been granted read/write access to the directory object? Does that actual folder on the database server have full read and write privileges for the user running the database. That is typically the oracle user.

does posted code run to successful completion?

Just for debugging purposes, I suggest that you eliminate the whole EXCEPTION handler code

You should never write an exception handler like this:
      WHEN Others THEN
               Dbms_Output.Put_Line('Problemas na geração do arquivo.');
               UTL_File.Fclose(exit_file);
How are you going to know what the actual error was?
If you need when others at all (understandable in this case to close the file) it should be this:
      WHEN Others THEN
               UTL_File.Fclose(exit_file);
               raise;
