Question Shell Programming

I have a fix_table.ksh script that takes a TABLENAME and a date.

So, in jk_table_file.txt I have the tables...one per line, and
in jk_out_file.txt I have the date in the format I need.

The following doesn not 'want' to work in a shell script...

for TABLE in `cat jk_table_file.txt`; do
`./fix_table.ksh $TABLE < jk_out_file.txt`

Any suggestions?
thanks.

remove the backticks around the second line so that it reads:

for TABLE in `cat jk_table_file.txt`
do
./fix_table.ksh $TABLE < jk_out_file.txt
done

Thanks for the response...

After taking the tick marks out:

for TABLE in `cat jk_table_file.txt`; do
./fix_table.ksh $TABLE < jk_out_file.txt
done

The message below is spit out after running it.
USAGE: fix_table.ksh tablename YYYY-MM-DD

If I were to fun fix_table from the command line:
fix_table.ksh calldata 2001-05-31


???
