Condition checking in UNIX

i have a script where i have to find the age of a file,
Code:
if [ -n "`find $DATA_DIR/1181*.dat -mtime -20`" ]
         then
         echo "dnb file is present for the monthly load"  >> $RUNLOG
         dnb="1"
        else
         echo "dnb file has not arrived yet"  > $ERRLOG
         dnb="0"
        fi

i know the file is available so when i am echoing the value of $dnb, it is returning 1....
but later on when i am using this $dnb variable while condition checking then i am getting some error:
Code:
if [$dnb ==`1`];
         then
         cat $RUNLOG | mailx -s "Success: All the files are arrived for RDW monthly load, below is the status of files" "$MAI
L_DL"
        else
         cat $ERRLOG | mailx -s "Attention: All the files are still not arrived for RDW monthly load, below is the status of
files" "$MAIL_DL"
        fi

instead of going to cat $runlog condition it is going to display $errlog and another error which i am getting is :

RDW_file_check.ksh[87]: 1: not found

please suggest..
