bash script & sql query

Hi Guys,

I would like with this script

"DATA=`ora123 su -c 'echo "SET HEADING OFF;\n SET FEED OFF;\n select USER NAME, ACCOUNT_STATUS from dba_users;\n exit" | sqlplus / as sysdba -s /' `
echo $DATA >> $DAT"

make a sql query, but the statement

"select USER NAME, ACCOUNT_STATUS from dba_users;"

does not work. :-(

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your help

I'm not really sure what you are trying to do in the first part of your statement:
DATA=`ora123 su -c

If I run the SQL (replacing echo with the more universally-format-friendly printf (and removing the exit;, which you don't need in this case)), I get the result I would expect:

$ printf "SET PAGES 0\nSET HEADING OFF\nSET FEED OFF\n select USER NAME, ACCOUNT_STATUS from dba_users;" | sqlplus -s / as sysdba
SYS			       OPEN
SYS			       OPEN
SYS			       OPEN

$ DATE=$(su oracle -c 'printf "SET PAGES 0\nset HEADING OFF\n SET FEED OFF\n select USER NAME, ACCOUNT_STATUS from dba_users;" | sqlplus -s / as sysdba')

$ echo "$DATE"
SYS			       OPEN
SYS			       OPEN
SYS			       OPEN

You need to enter the Oracle password (have sudo, ssh, or (yuk!) rsh set up to avoid that), and make sure you set your Oracle environment before running it.

the test with printf is the same....

.......web server (URL) or the local file system (filename.ext) with specified parameters that will be assigned to substitution variables in the script. When SQL*Plus starts, and after CONNECT commands, the site profile (e.g. $ORACLE_HOME/sqlplus/admin/glogin.sql) and the user profile (e.g. login.sql in the working directory) are run. The files may contain SQL*Plus commands. Refer to the SQL*Plus User's Guide and Reference for more information.

I get much the same "junk" with the original command you posted (between the ` ... `).

But I didn't use the original command you posted.

Please copy and paste (in [code][/code] tags) the exact command you used.
