i have a .csh which executes a sql.
The sql uses a number in the query

i want to execute the sql with the number entered in the csh.

i execute the sql

                             sqlplus -s dbname/dbpword@sname @/orasys/orahome/sqlname.sql

The user usually inputs the number to be queried but i want it to use the parameter from the csh

can this be done?

Its simple :

bsfdd171:/oq/home/utdbs01>cat seldt1.sql
select sysdate from dual where dummy = '&1';
exit
bsfdd171:/oq/home/utdbs01>sqlplus -s / @seldt1.sql Y
old   1: select sysdate from dual where dummy = '&1'
new   1: select sysdate from dual where dummy = 'Y'

no rows selected

bsfdd171:/oq/home/utdbs01>sqlplus -s / @seldt1.sql N
old   1: select sysdate from dual where dummy = '&1'
new   1: select sysdate from dual where dummy = 'N'

no rows selected

bsfdd171:/oq/home/utdbs01>sqlplus -s / @seldt1.sql X
old   1: select sysdate from dual where dummy = '&1'
new   1: select sysdate from dual where dummy = 'X'
