you need to include the path to your script  or start sqlplus from within the same directory where the script is located

assuming you execute it, does it produce the correct results?

if not, why not? what is the query in your script?

I recommend you fully specify the path for the SQL file.  It apparently is not in the directory from which you started your SQLPLUS session.

what are the numeric values supposed to be?

are those extents? bytes? data files?

how did you get that output if you don't know where to find the script?

A sys-privileged user may execute from a command prompt, SELECT * FROM sys.dba_tablespaces; to see output (without totals).  

If you exit out of your sqlplus session, what directory are you in?

I'm not an expert in SQL Server, but this syntax "@dba_tablespaces;" looks to me like examples I have seen of SQL Server syntax.  Are you possibly familiar with SQL Server but new to Oracle?  If yes, be aware that these two database systems are very different!  Yes, they are both "SQL compliant" and they both store data in tables that contain rows and columns.  But, that is about the limit of their similarities.

There have been a number of postings in this forum over the years highlighting some of their major differences.
