Hi all,

I have a plsql procedure which is to be called by a shell script.

In my shell script I am trying to connect to the oracle database

Quote:
$ sqlplus -s apps/apps@GAMDEV << EOF


but I am getting an error

Quote:
'<<' unmatched


Am i writing the correct syntax to connect to the database?

Please help!!

Thanks in advance

scott@9i > Disconnected from Oracle9i Enterprise Edition Release 9.2.0.8.0 - 64bit Production
With the Partitioning option
JServer Release 9.2.0.8.0 - Production
oracle@mutation#sqlplus -s scott/tiger <<EOF
> select sysdate from dual;
> exit;

You tell me. It is your program. Smile
Atleast, you should export ORACLE_HOME, PATH=$PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/bin etc.
