I recently use UTL_FILE and it works as well. But now I want to read a file until the sixth line and to modify that line.
If I use UTL_FILE.FOPEN with parameter 'R', I couldn't modify the sixth line. If I use UTL_FILE.FOPEN with parameter 'W', I couldn't use UTL_FILE.GET_LINE to change line in the file.

Help me please. Sorry for my poor english.

I don't know if i got ur problem right.

Here is an idea. Why don't u open the file with 'R' get the line save it in temp variable.

close the file

Modify

open file as 'W' and write the changes.
