N.T. 4.0, Oracle 8.1.6.

I placed parameter, 'util_file_dir = *' in init.ora

I then bounced the database.

I recompiled the procedure.
util_file.open still returns the invalid_path error.
My address syntax and address is valid.

Identical procedure worked in Oracle 8.0. Again, the file path is correct, and is located on the server that the database is located on.

What else can I do?
