Hi,

I'm having issues with the following:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
p_path:= 'TEST';
lv_file_handle  := UTL_FILE.FOPEN(p_path,REPLACE('test3.xls',' '),'W');

lv_text         := '<?xml version="1.0"?><Workbook xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:spreadsheet"                  xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" xmlns:x="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel" xmlns:ss="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:spreadsheet" xmlns:html="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40"> <DocumentProperties xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office">  <Author>'||USER||'</Author>  <LastAuthor>'||USER||'</LastAuthor>  <Created>'||REPLACE(TO_CHAr(sysdate,'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS'),' ','T')||'Z'||'</Created>  <Company>British American Tobacco</Company><Version>1.0</Version> </DocumentProperties> <OfficeDocumentSettings xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office">  <DownloadComponents/> <LocationOfComponents HRef="file:///\\"/> </OfficeDocumentSettings> <ExcelWorkbook xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel"><WindowHeight>8835</WindowHeight><WindowWidth>11340</WindowWidth><WindowTopX>480</WindowTopX><WindowTopY>120</WindowTopY><ProtectStructure>False</ProtectStructure>  <ProtectWindows>False</ProtectWindows> </ExcelWorkbook><Styles><Style ss:ID="Default" ss:Name="Normal"><Alignment ss:Vertical="Bottom"/><Borders/><Font/><Interior/><NumberFormat/><Protection/></Style>

<Table>';

UTL_FILE.PUT(lv_file_handle,lv_text);
UTL_FILE.NEW_LINE(lv_file_handle);

----------------------------------------------------------------------
this will create the file in the directory.

if I then include

lv_columntext := '<Row><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Region</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">End Market</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">End Market desc</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Trade Channel</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Sold-to party</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Order reason</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Plant</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Point of mf</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Brand family</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Brand variant</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Material</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Order</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Line</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Original Request dt</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">End Market Request</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Goods issue date</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Shipping ETA</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Days late</Data></Cell><Cell  ss:StyleID="COLY"><Data ss:Type="String">Qty requested</Data></Cell>

UTL_FILE.PUT(lv_file_handle,lv_columntext);
UTL_FILE.FCLOSE(lv_file_handle);

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

i get ORA-29285: file write error

the file gets created but if I try and go into the file then it tells me that the file is locked.

i then tried passing all the values into the first UTL_FILE call and got the same error

the length of lv_text is approx 4500

any ideas?

Im using Oracle 9.1 and created the directory as:

CREATE OR REPLACE DIRECTORY TEST AS 'D:\KPI\Files\TEST\'
GRANT WRITE, READ ON DIRECTORY TEST TO OTIF_EXECUTOR

What Oracle version are you using ?
The size was limited to 1023 bytes upto version 8.0.5
In version 8.1.5 and above, the character size limit is 32767 when you use the max linesize parameter in the UTL_FILE.FOPEN call. It is the 4th parameter.
You should use something like :
lv_file_handle  := UTL_FILE.FOPEN(p_path,REPLACE('test3.xls',' '),'W',5000);

I have version 9.1 (or 2) so why would I need to declare the size of the bytes?

I'll give it a go.

I think the default size is still 1023 bytes but it is OS dependent.

good work!

I put 5000 and it writes to the file and doesn't lock it.
