I know that there are many threads on this subject to begin with, however I still can't seem to figure this out even after scouring the internet for answers. I would appreciate it if someone could assist me with my specific script, thanks ahead of time for your patience... Smile

Okay, I have a Unix (Sun Solaris 10) script that needs to query one of my Oracle tables for a value and then use those results in other commands elsewhere in the same script. Most of the examples that I have seen using SQLPlus use "HERE" files to extract data, however I continue to get an error while trying to embed a "HERE" file within my parent script. I will post it here, hopefully it will help.

<snipped>
#Oracle variables
oracleUID='DW'
oraclePass='password'

                #Call SqlPlus to get vaulues from Oracle using a here file then populate the variables 
                #(finaldestinationfolder reportperfdest passphrase, ...)
                sqlplus -s oracleUID/oraclePass@noah << !EOSQL | \
                  awk -F: '{printf("%s ", $1); printf("%s ", $2 ); printf("%s ", $3 )}' | \
                  read finaldestinationfolder reportperfdest passphrase
              
                WHENEVER SQLERROR  exit 5
                set define on
                set heading off
                set pagesize 0
                set feedback off
                set echo off
                column passphrase format a90
                set linesize 100
                SELECT CASE RDP.REPORT_DESTINATION 
                       WHEN 'MC' THEN RDP.MEMBERCONNECT_FOLDER 
                       WHEN 'SF' THEN RDP.SAFELINK_FOLDER 
                       ELSE 'UNKNOWN' END ||
                       ':'||RDP.REPORT_DESTINATION||':'||CP.PASSPHRASE 
                FROM SACORP.MCI, DW.CLIENT_PASSPHRASE CP, DW_REF.EI_REPORT_DEST_PREF RDP 
                WHERE MCI.PSC_ID = RDP.PSC_ID
                  AND RDP.PSC_ID(+) = CP.PSC_ID
                  AND CP.EFFECTIVE_DATE = TRUNC(SYSDATE, 'MM')
                 AND MCI.CLIENT_ID = $clientid;
              
                exit 0
              
                !EOSQL
                #End of here file and call into Oracle
<snipped>


Any advice would be great!

Thanks in advance,

Danielle

error? What error? I don't see any error.
Can you debug code without knowing the error that needs to be fixed?
I know I can't, therefore You're On Your Own (YOYO)!

IMO, you are using the wrong tool for this job & paying the price for using a hammer to divide a board into two pieces.

A much better tool to solve this problem is PERL.

In the future, please limit your posted lines to 80 characters.

Sorry, didn't realize I should limit the size of my post. Razz Should I edit the thread to shorten it?

Here is the error I get when trying to execute the script:
$ ./script2.sh
destfilespath /export/home/boeprod/processfiles/destfiles/TestFiles
memberconnectpath /export/home/boeprod/processfiles/destfiles/TestFiles/MemberConnect
safelinkpath /export/home/boeprod/processfiles/destfiles/TestFiles/SafeLink
./script2.sh[61]: syntax error at line 121 : `<<' unmatched


How would I use Perl to accomplish this task?

Thanks again,

Danielle

By not having to resort to HERE script, by being able to directly invoking SQL statement via DBI/DBD.
The errors you post contain lines NUMBERS, but posted code does not show any.

What you don't realize is the the termination string "!EOSQL" MUST exist without intervening white space. It MUST the 1st characters on the line; leftmost.

   sqlplus << EOF
   / as sysdba
   set term on echo on
   select 'This works' from dual;
   exit
EOF


+ sqlplus

I am now getting the following error, though if I try to login to SQLPlus without using a script it works just fine... Any thoughts?

invalid username/password; logon denied        
ERROR   ORA-12162  TNS net service name is incorrectly specified       
SP2-0306  Invalid option.  
Usage  CONN[ECT] [logon] [AS {SYSDBA|SYSOPER}]  
where <logon> = <username>[/<password>][@<connect_identifier>] | / 
SP2-0157  unable to CONNECT to ORACLE after 3 attempts, exiting SQL*Plus

How sad..............
It appears no know neither Unix nor Oracle
>sqlplus -s oracleUID/oraclePass@noah
I am just guessing here, because you offer no useful clues but
sqlplus -s ${oracleUID}/${oraclePass}@noah
might work better, but can't work any worse if these are defined higher/above/before in the code you have hidden from us (TINU)

When are you going to fix the *&^%$#$^&& line length problem?

Script:
res=`sqlplus -s / <<EOF
set pagesize 0
set feedback off
select 1 from dual
union all
select 2 from dual
union all
select 3 from dual
/
EOF`
echo "res=$res"
echo $res | read v1 V2 v3
echo "v1=$v1 v2=$v2 v3=$v3 "

Interactive execution:
$ res=`sqlplus -s / <<EOF
set pagesize 0
set feedback off
select 1 from dual
union all
select 2 from dual
union all
select 3 from dual
/
EOF`
> set pagesize 0
> set feedback off
> select 1 from dual
> union all
> select 2 from dual
> union all
> select 3 from dual
> /
> EOF`
$ echo "res=$res"
res=         1
         2
         3
$ echo $res | read v1 V2 v3
$ echo "v1=$v1 v2=$v2 v3=$v3 "
v1=1 v2= v3=3

you can ident your here-document with TABs (including the closing tag) by using <<- rather than <<
