Actually, some of the lines remain.

Try, (from command line, not from SQLPLUS):

sqlplus -s username/password @test

and on the test.sql file:
SET NEWPAGE 0
SET SPACE 0
SET PAGESIZE 0
SET ECHO OFF
SET FEEDBACK OFF
SET HEADING OFF
select * from dual;
exit;
0

I use these set commands, some of them may be same as in the previous comment but I dont get the script lines out. The COLSEP setting will remove the default column separator of one space.

set PAGESIZE 0
set COLSEP ''
set TERMOUT off
set WRAP on
set VERIFY off
set HEADING off
set SHOWMODE off
set feedback off
spool c:\test.log
SELECT * from X;
spool off
0

Hi Flevyhara,

I tried your second option from command line it is running with out any errors but I could not see
where it is creating the output file, can I give any parameters to specify where to create the
out put file

Thanks

Hi SDutta,

I tried your lines of code but it is still spooling the query also.

EX:

SQL> select * from Dual;
X                                                                                                  
SQL> spool off;

This what it showd up in the spool file.
I just want to see the "X" in the file

Thanks
Madhavi

If that doesnt work, put the following set commands along with the select sql into a file say test.sql
set PAGESIZE 0
set COLSEP ''
set TERMOUT off
set WRAP on
set VERIFY off
set HEADING off
set SHOWMODE off
set feedback off
spool c:\test.log
SELECT * from X;
spool off
exit

Then from OS

sqlplus /nolog
SQL> connect user/pwd@dbname
Enter password:
Connected.
SQL>@test.sql
SQL>exit

OR

sqlplus user/pwd@dbname @test.sql
