sqlldr in shell script


I'm using SQL*Loader in shell script as below

sqlldr $uname/$pword@$ORACLE_SID parfile=$test.par

for e.g. if $test is 'file1'

and getting the below error
LRM-00109: could not open parameter file 'file1'
LRM-00113: error when processing file 'file1'

SQL*Loader: Release - Production on Thu Jul 28 14:37:59 2011

SQL*Loader-100: Syntax error on command-line

but the actual file which exists is file1.par Is it not recognising $test.par

Are you running this from cron perhaps ?
If you are, please specify full path to par file
or cd into DIR where the par file is and execute sqlldr.

I'm running by executing a shell script, given absolute path same error.

I ran in unix prompt sqlldr by giving just the name of the par file without path(ctl, par all in the same directory) it works. It did not work when executing in the shell script.

So you are saying :
You run sqlldr from command line with file1.par as parameter and it works ?
But after you put it in a shell script, you are getting error above ?

If above is true please :
Put set -x as second line of the script.
Put exec 2>>/path/to/log.log as next line
Also you might want to put some echo $test aswell.
Run the script and post the output of script and log.log here.

for test in `cat files.lst`; do echo $test".txt"; done
