Write a shell script for SQL loader to load data into a staging table


I'm new to Linux. I'm working on a database, and need to load data in a database table (which I already created) using shell script.

The table has two columns - Acct_number (not nullable) and date (timestamp).

I'm not able to write a shell script for that. Can any one help me?

This request is too vague. This should be a matter of using sql and piping/re-directing it into whatever sql cli is available. What database are you using? What operating system are you using? What data are you trying to load? Attach a sample of the data. Give example of the particular timestamp? Give an example of data in the table if it exists.
