May be a easy question. From the manuals, the "set termout off" sqlplus options suppresses the output to the terminal, but I can still see the output on the terminal. Is there anything more to it ?

sqlplus -s AAA_owner/AAA_owner_at_AAAngrp <<EOF set feedback off
set heading off
set termout off
spool z998.dat
select 1 from dual
select 2 from dual;
spool off
set termout on
EOF Rgds,
