URGENT: cron job not running the sqlplus command in shell script

cron job not running the sqlplus command in shell script but the shell script works fine from command line..

Cronjob:

5 * * * * /home/dreg/script.sh

script.sh:

#!/bin/ksh
/oracle/u000/app/oracle/product/10204/GEN/bin/sqlplus -s <user>/<pass>@<sid/home/dreg/sqlscript.sh

sqlscript.sh:

select <statements>

Script.sh works fine when ran from /home/dreg
cronjob runs the script.sh runs all comamnds in the script except just not executing the sqlplus.

It is littile URGENT ..appreciate if some one can response.

Thanks
Dreg

Without seeing the script cannot help much...


Make sure you use full paths for your commands and logs, check cron log output, make sure script has execute permissions for the cron user.

I have listed the script details above for your reference.

>>>Make sure you use full paths for your commands and logs, check cron log output, make sure script has execute permissions for the cron user.

Yes full path has been specified like you see in the above code.
Script has execute permissions to all

Code:
#!/bin/ksh
/oracle/u000/app/oracle/product/10204/GEN/bin/sqlplus -s <user>/<pass>@<sid/home/dreg/sqlscript.sh

The highlighted is not a full path.
