SQLPLUS within shell script


I want to connect to the Oracle database using a username/password and get back the query result(a numeric value) in a variable, which I can then compare using a conditional.

Can anybody help me with this.

var=$(sqlplus -s username/password@datbase_connect_string @abc.sql)

Thanks Dennis

I tried this snippet, it worked:

RESULT=`sqlplus -s <<!
select WO_STAT from tbl_wrk_ord where WO_ID='756843658';
echo $RESULT


WO_STAT ---------- 104

Is there any way I can get only the value of "104" and not the column header in RESULT?

RESULT=`sqlplus -s <<!
select WO_STAT from tbl_wrk_ord where WO_ID='756843658';
