Hi,

Here is a snippet from my ksh script :

MV_CREATION=`sqlplus -S $DATABASE <<-_END
SET SERVEROUTPUT ON;
SET PAGES 0;
SET LINESIZE 255;
SET FEEDBACK OFF;
SET NEWLINE ON;

EXEC DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('INFORM----FCFmv:'||'PLSQLLINE' ||':'|| TO_CHAR(SYSDATE,'DD/MM/YY HH24:MI:SS') || ' > Dropping public synonym.'||CHR(10));
EXEC DBMS_OUTPUT.NEW_LINE;


Both CHR(10) and DBMS_OUTPUT.NEW_LINE do not seem to work.
The output does not have a new line.
Tried CHR(13) as well. Does not work.

Any advise ?

Thanks.

What does this mean? In what they do not work?
Copy and paste your session.

I suggest you have a log file to capture the details. Else you might just lose the output details and also do the manual activity of copy pasting from what you see on the screen.

I bet neither korn shell nor Oracle is the culprit. Try it once again with a log file and copy paste the log file contents alongwith your script. That would show a crystal clear picture.

My bad, I did not specify the problem.

I meant none of these options were leading to a new line.

chr(10)
chr(13)
DBMS_OUTPUT.NEW_LINE

You are yet to post the log file content.

And logically you don't need put_line when you already have serveroutput enabled.

>SET LINESIZE 255;

Hmmmm, I do not think that SET NEWLINE is a valid sqlplus option

SQL> help set

 SET
 ---

 Sets a system variable to alter the SQL*Plus environment settings
 for your current session. For example, to:
     -   set the display width for data
     -   customize HTML formatting
     -   enable or disable printing of column headings
     -   set the number of lines per page

 SET system_variable value

 where system_variable and value represent one of the following clauses:

It works for me and I can prove it showing you my session:
SQL> begin
  2     dbms_output.put_line('A');
  3     dbms_output.put_line(chr(10));
  4     dbms_output.put_line('B');
  5     dbms_output.new_line;
  6     dbms_output.put_line('C');
  7  end;
  8  /
A


B

C

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

Now do the same thing for yours.
