Nope, didn't miss it. I just choose not to use oraenv and oratab for that matter, since v7.3 I create my own common environment script that gets called by all other scripts. We all have our own way :-)

You must have missed the part where we just got done arguing for, and extolling the virtues of, running oraenv.....

export ORACLE_HOME=<OH>

You do not need oraenv, just create an environment script that sets all your variables and call it from every script you write. I have a common env script for OH and 1 for each SID. I call both from each script. Do not put stuff in your profile.

Thanks for the tip, however when I try it, I get:

/home/oraprd/scripts/spi_schema_stats.sh[12]: .: oraenv: not found

#!/bin/ksh
USER=SYSTEM
PASSWORD=test
export ORACLE_SID=SPIPRD
export ORAENV_ASK=NO
. oraenv

sqlplus -s $USER/$PASSWORD <<EOF
set feed off
set head off
set pagesize 0
exec dbms_stats.gather_schema_stats('TEST',ESTIMATE_PERCENT=>30,CASCADE=>TRUE) exit;
EOF Eugene Pipko
  Please consider the environment before printing this e-mail.

You should use . oraenv as Mark suggested. By hard coding the ORACLE_HOME, you run the risk of breaking the script when you upgrade Oracle and/or move to a new ORACLE_HOME.

If you use oraenv, you have a tremendous amount of flexibility in scripting. Maintain your oratab and you don't worry about changing ORACLE_HOMEs and the same script can be used for multiple databases (pass in the ORACLE_SID as a parameter).

If you aren't going to use oraenv, you can remove the ORAENV_ASK line...

Daniel Fink
