"run ksh file and .profile" problem

When i install an application and create  a file named   orproduct_profile.ksh.

According to the guide book:

5.5 The installation script sets your environment with the provided values and
saves it in the orproduct_profile.ksh file in $OPRODUCT_ROOT.

5.6 Add orproduct_profile.ksh in your .profile file. To set up the application  environment,
execute your .profile again, or the user must login again.

But i don't know how to  " add orptoduct_profile.ksh" in to my .profile.  Could u tell me how to do this

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It depends on the contents of the file "orptoduct_profile.ksh". If they are of the form "<environment variable name>=<value>", for example "APPLICATIONPATH=/opt/application/bin", then these values must be included in your ".profile" by using the construction ". orptoduct_profile.ksh", because if you run "orptoduct_profile.ksh" as a script on it's own, the changes it makes to it's environment do not affect your login shell.

Is that enough help or do you need more?
