Hi Klashxx
How u doing thanks for the answer

My script is this

DIRNAME=`dirname $0`
export columnIdFile="colids.txt"
#checks to see if the log files is present, if not then creates it
if [ -a $DIRNAME/cvs_users_defaults.log ]
touch $DIRNAME/cvs_users_defaults.log

#Checking to see if a data file(colids.txt) exists for a load.
if [ -a $DIRNAME/$columnIdFile ]
echo "Using file $INCOLFILE as input for column id";
echo " ";
echo "Started Process on $TIME" >> $LOGFILE
echo "Calling procedure to initialize users"

for colId in `cat $INCOLFILE`
echo "Storing User Defaults for User " $colId >> $LOGFILE

integer i=0
awk '{print $1}' colids.txt | while read item; do

integer j=0
if [[ $j -lt 5 ]]; then
print ${myarray[j]}
echo "${myarray[${j}]}"
#Here I am trying to print or echo the values in the array myarray but #couldnot get the values
#Is there something wrong I am doing Can you plz help me out

#rename the file after processing
logtime=`date "+%y%m%d%H%M%S"`
# mv $userFile $newUserFile

echo "Ending process of setting user defaults at $TIME " >> $LOGFILE
echo "Check the log file at $LOGFILE"
exit 0
#IF "custsoncologyusers.txt" file does not exist in DIRNAME then end grace
echo "No user default file ($userFile) is available to load"
echo "No user default file ($userFile) is available to load" >> $LOG
echo "Ending user default process with a return code 0 at $TIME" >> $LOG
exit 0

Ok , try this (ksh):

awk '{print $1}' colids.txt | while read item
                                           (( i+= 1 ))               

while (( j < i ))
     echo "${myarray[${j}]}"
      (( j += 1 ))

Hi I tried to assign the array as you suggested
could able to assign but could not read them out of the loop

I was trying to do this instead

myfile has this data


typeset -i cnt=0
while read line
((cnt = cnt + 1))
done < myfile

select linefromfile in ${my_user_id[@]}
echo $linefromfile

when I looked at the output I am getting

why am I getting the #? at the end of the output
it's an error I guess and it's stopping the rest of the program to work

can any body explain why am I getting #? and how to get rid of it?
