Comparing Two Strings

Hi All,
While I am trying to run below code I Am getting the exception like

./abs.sh: line 102: syntax error near unexpected token `then'
./abs.sh: line 102: ` then'


The Code Snippet is:

if[ "$file1" = "Sector.sql" || "$file1" = "Currency.sql" ] then
cat $file1 | sed -e "s/DB_NAME/${DBNAME}/g" > $LOG_DIR/$file1
$ISQL -U$USER -P$PASSWD -S$SERVERNAME < $LOG_DIR/$file1
echo "$LOG_DIR/$file1 file::::::::"
rm $LOG_DIR/$file
else
. $file1
fi

Can Anybody help me out to rectify that exception.

Thanks,
Anji

syntax problem

either u should give
if[ "$file1" = "Sector.sql" || "$file1" = "Currency.sql" ]; then
or
if[ "$file1" = "Sector.sql" || "$file1" = "Currency.sql" ]
then

Thank buddy,
I have tried that logic too...

but still I am getting the following Exception

Code Snippet:
if["$file1" = "Sector.sql" || "$file1" = "Currency.sql"]; then
cat $file1 | sed -e "s/DB_NAME/${DBNAME}/g" > $LOG_DIR/$file1
$ISQL -U$USER -P$PASSWD -S$SERVERNAME < $LOG_DIR/$file1
echo "$LOG_DIR/$file1 file::::::::"
rm $LOG_DIR/$file
else
. $file1
fi

Exception:

./abs.sh: line 101: syntax error near unexpected token `then'
./abs.sh: line 101: ` if["$file1" = "Sector.sql" || "$file1" = "Currency.sql"]; then '

missing spaces and use -o for OR

if [ "$file1" = "Sector.sql" -o "$file1" = "Currency.sql" ]; then

Code:
if[ "$file1" = "Sector.sql" -o "$file1" = "Currency.sql"]; then
cat $file1 | sed -e "s/DB_NAME/${DBNAME}/g" > $LOG_DIR/$file1
$ISQL -U$USER -P$PASSWD -S$SERVERNAME < $LOG_DIR/$file1
echo "$LOG_DIR/$file1 file::::::::"
rm $LOG_DIR/$file

else
. $file1
fi

Error:
./BatchJobs.sh: line 101: syntax error near unexpected token `then'
