Any other suggestion? Thanks.
"set -x" on the top of the script, just after the #!/bin/ksh or whatever shell you use. Thne check on the output's run where is the error.

resolve the issue. The problem is the order of coding. I put rm $LOGFILE in front of echo $STARTTIME. Of course, the file has been rrmoved, then create again with other echo redirect info. This is why I cannot see first and second echo line. Thanks for input.
