s_d_m_crm_srr_team_hierarchy_sales,Full,Daily,29-MAY-2009 01:30:00,SUCCEEDED

Since I am going to run the all the jobs parallely and there is high possiblity of updating the status and END TIME parallely in a file.

It has to update only one record in file without any temporary file to miss the latest updation.

It will be grateful if you could help me out to get sort out my requirement?

input_path='/isscrmetl/data001/script test/file_upd'
if [ ! -f "$input_path"/"$list_file" ]
echo "List file not found"

IFS=" "
touch "$input_path"/$2_temp_file
cat "$input_path"/"$list_file" | while read session_name load_type freq end_time prev_stat

if [ "$session_name" = "$sess_name" ]
#end_time=`date +%m%d%Y` date +/%m%d%y.%H%M%S'.
#end_time=`date +%d-%h-%Y %t`
echo "$session_name $load_type $freq $end_time $prev_stat"
echo "$session_name $load_type $freq $end_time $prev_stat" >>"$input_path"/$2_temp_file
#echo "Temp File"
#cat "$input_path"/$2_temp_file
mv "$input_path"/$2_temp_file "$input_path"/"$list_file"

#rm -f "$input_path"/$1_temp_file

exit 0;
