    Unanswered: utl_file_dir

    Simple question...

    Is there a limitation (string length, number of directories, ...) on how many directories I can specify in the Init.ora "utl_file_dir"? (Oracle 8i on Windows 2000)

    Thanks!

    I'm not 100% certain and a simple test would confirm the actual limit,
    but I suspect that since this is a VARCHAR2 variable it is limited to 4000.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    When I describe the v$parameter view, the column "value" is definied as VARCHAR2(512). Is this a limitation of the view or is it really a limitation of the utl_file_dir variable? That is the question ...
