The current solution I have:
sqlplus -s /nolog <<EOF 1> sdwh_sc.results
connect UIDr/PWORD@db1
set serveroutput on
sqlplus -s /nolog <<EOF 1> dm_sc.results
connect UID/PWORD@db2
set serveroutput on

I then compare the output of the two *results files using UNIX scripting; however, it would be far faster if I could use SQL to decode table extracts for comparison. Is there a way to connect to another database from within a sql script so that I can use both databases in the from clause? I must be able to do this from a korn shell as indicated in the above code snippets.
