Does UTL_FILE.FSEEK Work In Write Mode?

(Doc ID 1910002.1)

Last updated on JULY 05, 2017

Applies to:

PL/SQL - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In most programming languages, it is allowed to write to a specific location to a file. But, trying to do the same in PL/SQL using UTL_FILE.FSEEK results in an ORA-29284: file read error.

How can this be achieved in PLSQL?
