When i query "select max(sequence#) from v\$log_history;" from a shell script it works. But if i set it up as cron job as below, it does not work. I cannot assign the output to a shell variable since the database is not open and it would crap out. Any other suggestions? And the reason for this behaviour? Thanks a lot in advance.
