Hi,

I want to retrieve values from an SQL file into an Operating system prameter using batch file.

My Batch file would look like this.

@echo on
setlocal
mkdir DailyReports_%a%_TCMCTF
sqlplus tcmsys/tcmsys@UAT1_GUB @C:\Database\BCR753\UAT\count.sql
@echo
pause

Count.sql will contain
Select count(1) from dual;

I want the output 1 to be recorded in a operating system variable in batch file.

Your help in this matter would be much appreciated.
Thank You.
Amit.

Hello,

I want the output of the sql file to be recorded in an Operating system variable.

Count(1) from dual will return 1. This 1 value should be stored in Operating system variable.

Thanks.

You could increase the chances of getting an answer by actually telling us the operating system.

C:\ might be a clue as to which OS is involved; then again it might not be.

Well, "c:\" USED to be a pretty good clue, but in the later versions of Windows (W2K3 / Vista) there have been some shell extensions which might have come in handy.

One way is to spool to a additional *.cmd and set the variable there :

test.sql writes that additional set.cmd :
spool set.cmd
set feedback off
set heading  off
select 'set MYVAR=' || count(*) from dual;
spool off
exit;


The calling script :

@echo off
sqlplus -s user/pass@db @test.sql
call set.cmd
echo VAR = %MYVAR%
