How to pass enviroment variable from csh to Informix sql script

Hello,

I have a csh script that creates an environment variable. I want to pass the environment variable(CURR_TABLE_DATE) to an Informix sql script. Here is the csh:

#!/bin/csh -f
setenv INFORMIXSERVER market3_tcp
setenv CURR_TABLE_DATE 20090714

set DATABASE = gm_cdr
set SQL_DIR = /es7/GMACC/sql

dbaccess $DATABASE $SQL_DIR/jim_create_gmacc_table_v2.sql

I'm not sure of the syntax on how to get the value of the environment variable into the sql script.

Below is my sql:

create table gmacc_dealers_$CURR_TABLE_DATE
(bac char(11);

load from '/es7/GMACC/data/gmacc_pardlrs_$CURR_TABLE_DATE.out'
insert into gmacc_dealers_$CURR_TABLE_DATE;

I'd like the value of 20090714 for $CURR_TABLE_DATE.

When I run the script, the table does get created but with a table name of gmacc_dealers_$curr_table_date and not gmacc_dealers_20090714.


Any help is greatly appreciated!

shell_builtins, case, for, foreach, function, if, repeat, select, switch, until, while - shell command interpreter built-in commands The shell command interpreters csh(1), ksh(1), and sh(1) have special built-in commands. The commands case, for, foreach, function, if, repeat, select, switch, until, and while are commands in the syntax recognized by the shells. They are described in the Commands section of the manual pages of the respective shells. The remaining commands listed in the table below are built into the shells for reasons such as efficiency or data sharing between command invocations.

File descriptor 1 is the default output location. When Job Control is enabled, additional Special Commands are added to the shell's environment. In addition to these built-in reserved command words, sh also uses: : No effect; the command does nothing. A zero exit code is returned. .filename Read and execute commands from filename and return. The search path specified by PATH is used to find the directory con- taining filename. C shell, csh Built-in commands are executed within the C shell. If a built-in command occurs as any component of a pipeline except the last, it is exe- cuted in a subshell. In addition to these built-in reserved command words, csh also uses: : Null command. This command is interpreted, but performs no action. Korn Shell, ksh, Special Commands Input/Output redirection is permitted. Unless otherwise indicated, the output is written on file descriptor 1 and the exit status, when there is no syntax error, is zero. Commands that are preceded by one or two * (asterisks) are treated specially in the following ways: 1. Variable assignment lists preceding the command remain in effect when the command completes. 2. I/O redirections are processed after variable assignments. 3. Errors cause a script that contains them to abort. 4. Words, following a command preceded by ** that are in the format of a variable assignment, are expanded with the same rules as a vari- able assignment. This means that tilde substitution is performed after the = sign and word splitting and file name generation are not performed. In addition to these built-in reserved command words, ksh also uses: * : [ arg ... ] The command only expands parameters. * .file [ arg ..Read the complete file then execute the commands. The commands are executed in the current shell environment. The search path specified by PATH is used to find the directory containing file. If any arguments arg are given, they become the posi- tional parameters. Otherwise, the positional parameters are unchanged.
