Wait. Are you thinking this code reads the output from sqlplus and sends each line into an array called AMT? It doesn't. You need something like this (at least in BASH):

AMT=(`sqlplus -s usrname/pswd <<EOD >$TMPDIR/$0.$$ 
set pagesize 0 feedback off verify off heading off echo on
select amount from tablename where condition;

# now you have contents in an array named A.

# print it as a list
echo ${A[@]} | tr ' ' '\n'

# do stuff with each line
for value in ${A[@]}
  echo $value

Use xargs if you have lines of input and want to do something so that all the lines appear on one output line.

I cannot help you. You are either lying or playing a game. In your first post in this thread, you used code that was to run "#!/bin/sh", which either means the real bourne shell or, in some systems, bash, and definitely not ksh. You simultaneously want to have output from a command put in a shell array and fed into awk. Finally, you make no apparent effort to help yourself.
