Data Wierd Message????

I am getting this message when I run my script.

$ runscript.sh

Not connected to any service!


Here is the beginning of the script:

# 1 - failure
#
# variable declaration
FILEDATE=`date +"%Y%m%d"`

Not connected to any service!


Right after the FILEDATE gets loaded I get that weird message. Does anyone know what that means??

Question

Just a thought - do you have any variables in your PATH env?

Echo $PATH to check this - then double check date is there - by typing "which date"

Probably not it - but good thing to check.

FILEDATE=`date +"%Y%m%d"`

Try to refrain from using variable names in CAPS.
I've notived that a lot of System Enviroment variables are set this way.
Try Fdate as a variable instead.

At the very top of the script, (underneath the #!/bin/sh, or similar) put the command:
set -x

That will print out everything the script does, as it does it, so you can see exactly where this error is happening...

Bug dumb mistake

I figured out my problem. Somehow I removed one of the # signs in front of one of my comments. Sorry to have wasted your time but I appreciate the help.

Infact, I'm sure everyone's done the same at some stage of their learning. Smilie
