To pass multiple arguments from file in to an sql query

Hi all ,

I want to pass contents from a file say f1 as arguments to a sql query which has In statement using a script


select * from table_1 where login in ( `cat f1`) ;

will this work or is there any other way to do it.
# 2  
if the SQL dialect is Oracle SQL*Plus, a possible solution is in the last post to the following orafaq thread:
OraFAQ Forum: Unix Passing String Arguments to SQL*Plus from a Unix Shell

Alternatively, you could think about building the .sql script on the fly every run, by using shell commands to create the SQL command string and echoing it into the .sql file.

See ya
