crontab not working

In /oracle folder, I created a file called "script.ksh" using vi command. The content of script.ksh is

* * * * * echo "welcome">/tmp/capture.log

I want the word "welcome" to be displayed in /tmp/capture.log file every minute.

I have created capture.log under /tmp folder.

Then in /oracle I gave the command crontab script.ksh

I see the word "welcome" displayed only one time. It is not displaying every minute.

You're probably clobbering it every time the cronjob runs. Use >> instead of > to append.

Thanks. It got resolved.
