- Subject: Script Doesn't Work Correctly with Cron
I have a script that works when I run it from the command line, but when it
is executed with cron, it produces a null file. I am sure that cron is
executing it because it creates the file. It is just not populated.
Here is the script. I want to query an Oracle database every couple of
minutes, capture some data, and append it to a flat file. I want to keep
2000 lines in the flat file.
Can someone spot the error? Again, it works run from the command line.
sqlplus -s scott@mydb < up @ss.sql | grep -v "Enter password:" >>
tail -2000 monsql.lst > montemp.lst
rm -f monsql.lst
mv montemp.lst monsql.lst
