how to get the output of a grep command to a file inside a shell script

hi,

i wat to get the output of a grep command in a file. but when i am trying out the same grep command in the unix prompt its working fine.. i am getting the output properly.. but when i am writing the same command inside my shell script , its just creating a new output file with no contents inside.

can anyone help me out with this.

eg: grep -v 'rows' GREP_FILE > GREP_DEST

when i am trying this in the unix prompt i am getting the required output like the GREP_DEST file will have an output with all the lines having 'rows' removed.

when i am giving the same command inside my shell script, its not working..

thanks in advace for all your help..

Any chance there's a cd command in the script, and you're not in the directory you think you are?
