  Thanks. Can you give example for tee. Thanks Howard, Bill, Dan, Mindagaus, Dave  
I tried
set -x
sqlplus ... 1>$OUTFIL
set +x
but somehow the log does not have the sqlplus command. The log has rest of the output. I can see the commands being displayed on the screen. I am doing :  
set -x
sqlplus -s $user_at_db1 _at_sql1.sql <.pw  > $OUTFILE  2>&1 sqlplus -s $user_at_db2 _at_sql1.sql <.pw  >> $OUTFILE  2>&1 set +x

if your looking for output to both stdout and a logfile either script or tee

script will put everything into a logfile and tee will split stdout to a logfile as well

I.E - <shell command> | tee <file_name>

gives the output on the screen. I am looking for a way so that it also goes to the LOGIFLE. So I can get the command being executed in the log. For example if I have :
> set -x sqlplus .... > $OUTFIL ... set +x

does not go to log. From the log it is difficult to know which sqlplus had the error. I tried to put a echo before the sqlplus to know it but i have to update it each time so looking for a better way. Zoran and Frank helped out dba village and I have made progress to this point. Could not find much on net. Thanks
