i am trying to create a database in Oracle 9.2.7 for Windows.

I am using Windows XP.

The used directory exists and i have write permission...

My Code for SQL:
create tablespace xxx_install
datafile ' c:\oracle\oradata\xxx_install01.dbf'
size 160M
autoextend on next 10M maxsize 1999M;

This is the error output:
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01119: error in creating database file '
ORA-27040: skgfrcre: create error, unable to create file

Please help me to fix this.

Regards Stefan
