Shell script with sql script error

Hi All

when I execute from psql prompt, I get the result, when I try to automate
using a shell script, the query is not working

HTML Code:
# `/usr/bin/psql -U postgres  -d coba1 -c  "select name from users where 
"Date" > current_date - 30;"`
ERROR: column "Date" does not exist
LINE 1: select name from users where Date >current_...


works below

HTML Code:
 sudo -u postgres psql
psql (9.4.5)
Type "help" for help.

HTML Code:
postgres=# \connect coba1
You are now connected to database "coba1" as user "postgres".
HTML Code:
coba1=# select name from users where "Date" >current_date - 30;

You have to escape quotes when you put them inside quotes, like \"
