Data Syntax error

Hi all,

I have problems in this piece if code. I am not able to figure out the exact problem.

Code:
set_load()
{
        log "Setting load to ${1} status ..."
        essmsh > ${load_log} 2>&1 <<EOF  -----This is line number 43
                login ${ESSUSER} ${ESSPSD};
                alter system load application '${1}';
        EOF
 
        cat ${load_log)
 
        return $?
}

The error i get is "syntax error at line 43 : `<<' unmatched". Can anyone help?

Hi.

The closing EOF must be on a line by itself... no leading or trailing whitespace - means at the start of the line and the only thing on the line.

Cheers. It worked. Thanks a lot.
