RE: spool file

One way to obtain the desired result is to issue a file rename command from the SQLPlus script
.... some work
host mv my_file.lst my_file
Naturally when the spool file is created from sqlplus scripts executed from OS shell scripts the file name can be changed in the shell script.

Ignore the previous email. I misread it.
To create a spool file without any extension you have to use the method you describe or redirect the output from sql*plus. The problem with redirecting the output is you can have only one spool file per session.
oracle_at_daniel-desktop:~$ sqlplus -s / as sysdba <<EOF >>test
> select 'x' from dual;
oracle_at_daniel-desktop:~$ ls -lart test -rw-r--r-- 1 oracle oinstall 8 2009-12-20 14:21 test oracle_at_daniel-desktop:~$ more test

I have seen examples of hosting out of the session and renaming the file , but is there a way to create the spool file from the beginning with no extension? thanks. ________________________________ Your E-mail and More On-the-Go.
