Hello there!

I am in need of urgent help. i do believe that when you used the command SPOOLfilename without specifying an extension name, it automatically puts an .lst extension name. Can you help me identify if there is any way i can generate a file without an extension name? I am in need of help right now. I hope someone will answer my post as soon as possible. I really really appreciate it!

Thanks,
Jen

Cool eh, searching..
Found this link within a single minute..

Next time things are so "urgent", don't rely on forums. If you do, don't mention that it is urgent, it tends to put people off.

And I'm Mrs Margaret Thatcher (in disguise).

Just kidding; however, how is anyone supposed to know that senaubi_me = user618088. Besides, once you get the answer, it would be nice to post the solution so that other form members might learn something from it.

My reaction to taht question is the same I had when I read the same from the OP, whose old thread you have hijacked.

And that reaction is "why would you want to?" You can _change_ the extenstion by simply specifying it:

spool myspool.log
or

spool myspool.txt
or

spool myspool.myextension

So why would you want a file named 'myspool' -- with no extension at all? If you really, really, really need that (doubtful), rename it with the OS after you exit sqlplus, or even use sqlplus's 'host' command:

spool myspool.txt
select sysdate from dual;
spool off
host ren myspool.txt myspool
