Hi

I am able to execute a normal Oracle SP from the Shell script.
But how do i execute a Oracle SP with parameters from a shell script??

I use the following code to execute a normal Oracle SP from shell script:

sqlplus -s ${ORAID} @<<EOF  >${SQL_RET}
        set pause off;
        set pagesize 0;
        set trimspool on;
        set echo off;
        set feedback off;
        set linesize 1000;
        set verify off;
        set define on;
        set serveroutput on size 1000000;

        exec SP_NAME;
exit;
EOF

STATUS=$?

TIA

exec sp_name(param1,param2,param3...ect)

If it's a varchar2 then include it in quotes 'param1'

Does this mean that I can pass the shell script variable to the SP and I dont need to declare an Oracle variable?

No if you have created a procedure :

sp_name(p_1 in varchar2,p_2 in number)

Then from your Shell Script, just pass it as:

sqlplus -s ${ORAID} @<<EOF  >${SQL_RET}
        set pause off;
        set pagesize 0;
        set trimspool on;
        set echo off;
        set feedback off;
        set linesize 1000;
        set verify off;
        set define on;
        set serveroutput on size 1000000;

        exec SP_NAME('MYVARP1',100);
exit;
EOF

STATUS=$?

Or if you want to pass parameters at runtime, then use another script to execute the sp.

sqlplus user/pass@sid @MYFILE.sql param1 param2

----------------------------------------
Contents of MYFILE.sql
----------------------------------------
set pause off;
        set pagesize 0;
        set trimspool on;
        set echo off;
        set feedback off;
        set linesize 1000;
        set verify off;
        set define on;
        set serveroutput on size 1000000;

exec sp_name('&1',&2);
exit;
