Connecting to Oracle DB using sqlplus

Hi,

I am very new to shell scripting and trying to write a simple shell script in which i am trying to achieve the following:

1. Connect to oracle database hosted on a different server
2. fire a query on the oracle db
3. store the output in a variable
4. use this variable for further logic

The code that i have written so far is as follows:

#!/bin/bash

#Connect to the database using sqlplus

sqlplus 'DBUSER/dbuser@(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS_LIST=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=10.5.199.106)(PORT=1521)))(CONNECT_DA TA=(SERVICE_NAME=PHYGD1)))' >> outputlogfile.log

# Fire the query on database

DCOFCVALUE=select sync_cmpl
from table(dbdev.db_inv_dtl_hdr)
where dc_id ='30'
and to_char(sync_req_dttm,'YYYYMMDD')= '20100331';

ENDSQL

# Check if DCOFCVALUE was succesful or not
if [ $DCOFCVALUE = Y ]
then
echo "DCOFCVALUE Succesfull\n"
exit 2
else
if [ $DCOFCVALUE = N]
then
echo "DCOFCVALUE Unsuccesfull\n"
exit 3
fi
fi

exit 0


Now the error message i am getting is as follows:

line 29: sync_cmpl: command not found
.line 30: syntax error near unexpected token `('
line 30: `from table(dbdev.db_inv_dtl_hdr)'

Could someone please guide where am I going wrong? And what is the correct way to write such a code.

Your help is highly appreciated!

Regards,
Shruti
