Hi,


As yo a missing spfile, it's likely a pathing issue, check you path environment

We are not psychic!

Oracle is the worlds most sophisticated database, it was not designed for the casual user.

Most folks start with a masters degree in CS or IT and take a month of training at Oracle University:

If the database starts on the pfile, then the spfile is missing or missnamed. Easy way to switch to spfile is to create a new one from the pfile and then restart the database. Use create spfile from pfile and the database will create it where it will look for it and correctly name it.
