batch file to open sqlplus

Hi,

I have a dozens of batch files that I use to automate SQLPlus (and SQLCMD).  I need to change my db passwords frequently, and updating all of my batch files is a big pain.  

Could I store the pw in a single place and call it from the batch file?

Here's what a current sqlplus batch file looks like:
chdir "O:\Automation"
sqlplus user/passwrd@db @example.sql

what I'd like to have is only one file that contains my password
something like C:\securefolder\password.txt

Can I reference that in the batch file to get the pw?

Thanks!

I found a solution here:
www.computing.net

I took the suggestion from klint and modified it to this:
@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
set ConStr=
for /f "delims=" %%a in (mydb_constr.txt) do (
  set currentline=%%a
  set ConStr=!ConStr!!currentline!
)

chdir "O:\Automation"

SET tns_admin=C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\client_1\NETWORK\ADMIN

%ConStr%

cmd

Open in new window


Where the file (mydb_constr.txt) contains the connection string
"sqlplus user/passwrd@db @example.sql"

To clarlify in case anyone else finds this helpful...

I figured out how to make this work with just the pw, rather than the whole connection string.

I changed this line:
%ConStr%
to this:
!sqlplus user/%ConStr%@db @example.sql!

and then modified the .txt file to just store the pw

I didn't realize I could combine it all using the "%" symbol and tie it all in with the "!"

Looking back at the question I probably should have called this something like "referencing a variable in batch file" if a mod comes across this maybe you could change the title so others can find this easier?

Thanks EE!
