Power updating a column in oracle table using shell script

Hi friends,
i am having a variable declared in .profile.i am changing its value in a shell script and then i am connecting to oracle and then from there i am calling a .sql called update.sql
STATUS is the variable declared in the .profile
===============================
if [ $STATUS -eq 1 ]
sqlplus <<END
username/password@connectstring
@update.sql
commit;
but how to i pass the value of the $STATUS to the .sql ? this value has to go into a column in a table.
Please help
thanks in advance

You can specify STATUS value as &1 in update.sql file and call the script as
@update.sql $STATUS
or
@update.sql 1 as the script is called only if STATUS is equal to 1

sssow's post should accomplish what you are requesting. Can you provide your update.sql script? It should look something like this:
Code:
-- update.sql
update yourtable 
set    status=&1
where  whatever='some key value';

And your usage of update.sql should look like this:
Code:
if [ $STATUS -eq 1 ]
sqlplus <<END
username/password@connectstring
@update.sql $STATUS
commit;
END
