sql in shell script

Hey I have this shell script that I am trying to run and receive a value from a sql query.Then later use the value in an if stmt... I cannot get this to work for nothing..

Here is the script


(sqlplus -s $usrname/$passwrd <<!
set head off feed off pagesize 0
select b
from table;
set head on feed on pagesize 55
!
) | read b

echo $b

if [ "$b" = "off" ];
then
echo "Bin $msg!"
else
echo "Bin off $msg!"
fi

You have to redirect the output to a file using -

spool /app/common/home/nprao/mesg.txt
# 4  
How would i do that?
# 5  
try this ...


b=`sqlplus -s $usrname/$passwrd <<!
set head off feed off pagesize 0
select b
from table;
set head on feed on pagesize 55
!`

echo $b

I think this is more what you are looking for:
Code:
MyVar=$(
sqlplus -S scott/tiger <<!
set head off feedback off echo off pages 0
select user
from dual
/
!
)
print $MyVar
SCOTT

This only works with a single column and row.
