Need more information...what do you mean by passing an array to Oracle? Is this into a stored procedure, or directly into a table....please give more detail!

yep sai , u r rite , shell script only allow one dimensional arrays .
is u want to fill a one dimension array from oracle , then this mite help

set -A `sqlplus userid/pwd @urcode.sql`

urcode.sql , u will have to have dbms_output.put_line so that whatever is passed out is captured into the array .


P.S. : 1) Awk mite give u more freedom in arrays
2) Do let me know on whether there is ne other mehod

Thanks Ace
Your tip helped me in passing array from oracle to Shell.
I tried from .sql file passing array to Oracle procedure and getting back the array This also worked fine.
Iam trying to use this array in .sql file in the shell script.
If this idea works I think I can send the array from Oracle to and shell and vice versa.
I will update this if I accomplish the task.

Please update if you have any other opinion about this
