    How to write data into a flat file

    hi,
    is there any tool/program which can be used to write the oracle data into a flat file.
    The requirement is just to write the data, but not the structure.

    Regards

    I think Patrol DB Unload would fit the bill here.

    Also if you want to write in html format :

    spool your_file.html
    set MARKUP HTML ON
    ..do smthing
    set MARKUP HTML OFF
    spool off

    If you want to do it purely from the server side, ie. without going through a client tool, then consider using the supplied package "UTL_FILE". Otherwise, SQL*Plus is a good option, using the config statements that adewri gave. You might need to consider setting ..

    heading off
    linesize 1000 (or a big number)
    trimspool on
    echo off
    feedback off
    pagesize 0

    .. to name a few.

    You can use TEXT_IO package from oracle applications like developer/forms.
