Again: Loading from Excel into an Oracle table or creating a file from Oracle to load into Excel?

On a client machine, you probably cannot use a stored procedure. Stored procedures can only write to files on the database server.

There really isn't a way for Oracle to open en Excel binary, process it and spit out delimited rows in text format.

Is there a reason you just don't save the Excel file in TXT format?

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE testfile
IS
    xfilehandleout          UTL_FILE.file_type;
    xfiledir                VARCHAR2 (200);
    xfilenameout            VARCHAR2 (5000);
BEGIN

    xfiledir := 'C:\CRA Working.data.txt';

    --SELECT SYSDATE||'test1.xml' INTO xfilenameout from dual;

    xfilenameout := 'test1.xml';

    --xfilehandleout := UTL_FILE.fopen ('OUTBOUND_DIR', xfilenameout, 'w');

    xfilehandleout := UTL_FILE.fopen (xfiledir, 'test.txt', 'w');




    FOR EMPREC IN (SELECT user#, emp#, salary, country FROM emp)
    LOOP

       UTL_FILE.put_line (xfilehandleout, EMPREC.user#||'|'||'|'||EMPREC.emp#||'|'||EMPREC.salary||'|'||EMPREC.country);

    END LOOP;



    UTL_FILE.fclose (xfilehandleout);

EXCEPTION
         WHEN utl_file.invalid_path THEN
             dbms_output.put_line('Path not found on DB-server.');
         WHEN OTHERS THEN
           dbms_output.put_line('Others: '|| SQLERRM);

END;

>>xfiledir := 'C:\CRA Working.data.txt';

That is the "C" drive of the database server not the remote client machine.

That example also is taking rows from the EMP table and creating a pipe delimited file.

You said in http:#a35010171 that you have an excel file and want to create a pipe delimited file.  That is not what that code you posted is doing.
