Run SQL thru shell script: how to get a new line when run sql query?

Hi, this's Pom. I'm quite a new one for shell script but I have to do sql on shell script to query some information from database.

I found a concern to get a new line...When I run my script, it retrieves all data as wondering but it's shown in one line Smilie

What should I do? I'm not sure that I did set the statements correctly.
Please kindly to suggest me ;(


suc_num=`$PATH/sqlplus -s xx/yyy@service_name << !
set echo off
set feedback off
set heading off
set pagesize 0
set newpage 0
set wrap on
echo $suc_num

Result: (Should have 3 columns: DateTime[yyyy-mm-dd hh]|The Number|ElementName)

echo "$suc_num"
