Gene,
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.

Subject: RE: Utl_file and OPENVMS

i believe its

utl_file_dir=dir1,dir2,dir3,...

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

hth,

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

the vms user oracle needs rights to the directory.

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:

DTS_PARAMETER_NAME DTS_PARAMETER_VALUE

------------------------------

LOAD_USERID LOADITUP

LOAD_PASSWORD ILOADIT

LOAD_SERVICE_NAME GLC_ALPHADEV-TCP

LOAD_PAR_FILE_DIR ORADSK:[ORACLE8.DATA.PAR]

LOAD_DATA_FILE_DIR Disk1:[Pro_ics.Iqfiles]

LOAD_CONTROL_FILE_DIR ORADSK:[ORACLE8.DATA.CONTROL]

LOAD_LOG_FILE_DIR ORADSK:[ORACLE8.DATA.LOG]

LOAD_BAD_FILE_DIR ORADSK:[ORACLE8.DATA.BAD]

LOAD_DISCARD_FILE_DIR ORADSK:[ORACLE8.DATA.DISCARD]

Listing from the package that writes the parameter file:

Procedure Create_New_Par_File

(

P_Current_Table_Name In Varchar2,

P_Run_Date In Date,

P_Load_Userid In Varchar2,

P_Load_Password In Varchar2,

Begin

Declare

L_Par_File_Hand Utl_FIle.File_Type; -- Local
variable to
hold the File Pointer for the parameter file.

Begin
I PLACED A DBMS_OUTPUT STATEMENT HERE AND IT DISPLAYED THE

PROPER DIRECTORY LOCATION FOR THE FILE TO BE WRITT

EN TO.

Open a new parameter file

L_Par_File_Hand :=

Utl_File.Fopen(P_Load_Par_File_Dir,P_Current_Table_Name||'.PAR','w');

Print the following lines into the parameter file.

Utl_File.Put

(L_Par_File_Hand,'UserId='||P_Load_UserId||'/'||P_Load_Password||'@'||P_Load
_Service_Name);

Utl_File.New_Line(L_Par_File_Hand);

If Not P_Current_Table_Name = 'GLCRET'

Then

Utl_File.Put

(L_Par_File_Hand,'Errors=1');

Else

Utl_File.Put

(L_Par_File_Hand,'Errors=50');

End If;

Utl_File.New_Line(L_Par_File_Hand);

Utl_File.Put

(L_Par_File_Hand,'Control='||P_Load_Control_File_Dir||'/'||P_Current_Table_N
ame||'.CTL');

Utl_File.New_Line(L_Par_File_Hand);

Utl_File.Put

(L_Par_File_Hand,'Log='||P_Load_Log_File_Dir||'/'||P_Current_Table_Name||to_
char(P_Run_Date,'mmdd')||'.LOG');

Utl_File.New_Line(L_Par_File_Hand);

Utl_File.Put

char(P_Run_Date,'mmdd')||'.BAD');

Utl_File.New_Line(L_Par_File_Hand);

Utl_File.Put

/'||

P_Current_Table_Name||to_char(P_Run_Date,'yyyymmdd')||'.DAT');

Close the file after printing.

Utl_File.Fclose(L_Par_File_Hand);

Exception

When Others then

Dbms_Output.Put_line(to_char(sqlcode)||'-'||SQLERRM);

End;

Thanks, Any assistance would be appreciated. I am just getting in to
the OPENVMS OS.
