# UTL_FILE direcotry name changes oracle 19c

I’ve scripts where `UTL_FILE.FOPEN` is used and the parameter passing for directory is an absolute path i.e., `/asr/file/path` and the corresponding oracle directory name as `ASR_ABC` but after up-gradation to oracle 19c the parameter is expected to be direcotry name `ASR_ABC` instead of absolute path `/asr/file/path`.

If I pass an absolute path I get error as `Invalid path`.

Do I have to change all the files from absolute path to directory name? or is there any work around which can be done from database to avoid changes in all files?
