Snippet Name: BFILENAME

Description: BFILENAME returns a BFILE locator that is associated with a physical LOB binary file on the server file system.

'directory' is a database object that serves as an alias for a full path name on the server file system where the files are actually located.

'filename' is the name of the file in the server file system.

The directory argument is case sensitive- you must ensure that you specify the directory object name exactly as it exists in the data dictionary.
