I need to write CLOB data to .txt file into Client PC?
Any example fot it?
select clobvar from temp_clob;
The client is responsible for communicating with the server. The client reads user input. The client sends user input to the server. The client receives server output. The client renders the server output for the client. Or saves the server output on the client.
You cannot expect the server to write data (like a server CLOB) to a text file on the client. How is the server suppose to hack across the network, break open that client, and access that client's local drive to write data to it?
So the answer to your question - the client needs to write the CLOB data it receives from the server, to a local text file.
If you can explain the client, we can suggest how the server can deliver that CLOB to the client. E.g. is the client a fat client (Visual Basic for example), is the client a web browser, etc?
Does not change how client-server works.
The client needs to read, from the database server, the 2GB LOB - and then the client needs to write that to a text file. PL/SQL does NOT write to a client file - or move server files to a client platform. This is NOT how client-server architecture works.
If the client is a web browser, then it is as easy as executing from the browser a PL/SQL procedure, and this procedure streaming the LOB to the browser (using a specific Mime type). Upon which the browser will provide (assuming a proper Mime type is used) a file save as option for saving that server data stream to a local file.
