Is it possible to send the output from a isql query to a variable in a shell script?

Example:

isql -b -Usa -P******<<-EOF > $variable
use prod_talis
go
select sum(AMOUNT) from CHARGE_INCURRED where BORROWER_ID = 0158258
go
EOF`

echo $variable

I'm fairly new to shell scripting and if I were to do this,it would be brilliant.

I look forward to your replies!

Try this:

variable=`
isql -b -Usa -P******<<-EOF
use prod_talis
go
select sum(AMOUNT) from CHARGE_INCURRED where BORROWER_ID = 0158258
go
EOF
`
echo $variable

PS: Those are back-ticks.

How very odd, I did try the back ticks approach but it didn't work.

I got the idea from

Oh well...I must've been making typos.

Thanks for the help Mike.
