Help with looping

Hi,
Actually I have a file which consists data . for eg names.
Then I want my sql query to read this file and produce the output.
Currently I am using this
FOR EG : FILENAME is NAMES
for i in `cat NAMES`
{
sqlplus -s $CONNECTID << EOF
spool rooh
set heading off
select name,address1,address2,street,occupation,age
from emp_detail
where name='$i';
spool off
EOF
}
but what happens is that it produces the spool file but contains only the last row fetched . But I want all the rows to be fetched in this file.
Can somebody show me where I am going wrong ?
Thanks in advance.

Rooh

spool overwrites the file every time you SPOOL fn.

After your SQL Query is done, you have to append your results to some "master" type file.

For example, something like:
Code:
touch master.out
for i in `cat NAMES` 
{ 
sqlplus -s $CONNECTID << EOF 
spool rooh 
set heading off 
select name,address1,address2,street,occupation,age 
from emp_detail 
where name='$i'; 
spool off 
EOF
cat rooh >> master.out
}
