Try to use:

SQL> Spool on;
SQL> Spool c:\spooltext.txt;
SQL> Query;
SQL> Spool off;

And use the following aditional settings:
set echo off
set verify off
set feedback off
set headings off
set trimspool on
set termout off

If you copy and paste the commands or use a UNIX here script you can see the spool off command.

Please post how you are running the script.

Again, are you using copy/paste to get those commands into sqlplus?

Put the commands in a script file and 'execute' the script.

SQL> Spool c:\spooltext.txt;
SQL> @c:\test.sql
SQL> Spool off;
