There are quite a few ways to do it..on of which is
# saving the file as get_count.ksh

sqlplus -s $1/$2@$3 << EOF >> output_file.txt 2>&1
set newpage 0
set heading off
set feedback off
set linesize 9999
set pagesize 0
select count(*) from table1;

run as
./get_count.ksh db_username passwd database

As you would know in place of db_username passwd database give the respective database names etc..
