Generating file from sqlplus

Hi Frndz,

I have req in which i need to run the query stored in some file and then store the resultset of the query in some other file.

PFB the code i have written:
#----Start job log---






echo "Connecting to Oracle: `date +'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S'`" > $SQLLOG

echo "SQL Script Name:$ORA_QUERY " >> $SQLLOG

echo " " >> $SQLLOG


sqlplus -s /nolog << EOF >> $SQLLOG 2>&1


set colsep '^]'

set echo off

set feedback off

set pagesize 0

set wrap off

 spool $ORA_RESULT





echo "Return code: $RC" >> $SQLLOG

echo " " >> $SQLLOG

echo "Connection end: `date +'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S'`" >> $SQLLOG

echo " " >> $SQLLOG

Now i am able to genrate the file with required resultset...the only prob is.i am getting data in below format:
rows will be truncated

rows will be truncated

rows will be truncated

rows will be truncated

rows will be truncated

rows will be truncated

rows will be truncated

rows will be truncated

rows will be truncated


My actual data is (in oracle)
SGSWKJJ6IXFH|8/25/2012 2:31:20 AM|%|Single Use|||3rd Party|0011917||5% off $50 storewide products_9_1_12||9/1/2012 7:00:00 AM|12/1/2012 6:59:00 AM|8/25/2012 2:31:20 AM|8/25/2012 2:31:20 AM

Note:i used symbol "|" jus to differentiate my data.

and my expected data should be:
SGSWKJJ6IXFH^]8/25/2012 2:31:20 AM^]%^]Single Use^]^]^]3rd Party^]0011917^]^]5% off $50 storewide products_9_1_12^]^]9/1/2012 7:00:00 AM^]12/1/2012 6:59:00 AM^]8/25/2012 2:31:20 AM^]8/25/2012 2:31:20 AM

what is the output your getting ( just 3 lines enough...) so I can understand...

It appears to be sqlplus settings are a problem.

set linesize [LARGE value]

try a LARGE value of something like 999

Then add:
set trimspool on

All of this before the qww.sql executes.

That is what I thought... but without seeing actual output it will be difficult to guess to correct size...
As I noticed linesize was not set...
