I have written a function in Unix which executes SQL. Please find the function in code snippet.

I copied the sql statement as is from there into TOAD. It is working perfectly fine by returning 7 rows.

When i execute this script in Unix, i am getting the following error. Please suggest.

ORA-19202: Error occurred in XML processing
ORA-24333: zero iteration count
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_XMLGEN", line 176
ORA-06512: at line 1

no rows selected
if [ "$sql_query" != "" ]
sqlplus -s $dbuser/$dbpass << END_OF_SQL
set pages 0;
set linesize 285;
set long 999999999;
set head off;
spool $logdir/$fileName;
select dbms_xmlgen.getxml( '$sql_query' )xmlrow from dual;
spool off;
sql="select * from table where to_date(moddate,'DD-MON-YY') in to_date('12-FEB-08','DD-MON-YY')"
