With an established current directory object, you can specify a file identifier in a DML file access statement without including the name of the directory object. Some examples of file access statements are FILECOPY, FILEMOVE, FILEDELETE, EXPORT, and IMPORT.
A text expression that specifies the directory object that you want to be the current one for your session.
When you do not specify this argument, CDA sends the name of the current directory object to the current outfile. When there is no current directory object, the statement reports that fact.
The following statement moves the file
log.txt from your session's current directory object to file
oldlog.txt in a directory object called
FILECOPY 'log.txt' 'backup/oldlog.txt'
A database administrator must set up a directory object and give you access to it.
The following statement identifies
mydir as the current directory object.
