CPU & Memory problem with GREP, help plzz

I just want the output of this command to be stored in a variable like,

str = `grep Application.dbName serverdata/ServerProp.txt`

but while executing it says like,

str : startup 11: not found, where startup is the script name.

but while running the command alone like,

grep Application.dbName serverdata/ServerProp.txt

it works fine!!!

What may be the problem, plz do suggest

For assignment to a variable, do not put spaces before/after the equal-sign.
