    Specifying spaces with utl_file.put_line

    The following how could replace my commas with a designated number of spaces, it 10 spaces, or 5 spaces for simply readability of the output

    utl_file.put_line(v_output_file1, cursor_emp.empno || ',' || cursor_emp.ename || ',' || cursor_emp.deptno);

    You mean like ...
    Code:
    utl_file.put_line(v_output_file1, RPad(cursor_emp.empno,10) || RPad(cursor_emp.ename,30) || RPad(cursor_emp.deptno,10));
