I have a ksh script that writes data from one view to a table in html file. I want to createan html file with multiple tables with data from different views in my database. how can I modify my script to accomplish that?

#!/usr/bin/ksh

export ORACLE_SID=DBName
ORAENV_ASK=NO
. oraenv
sqlplus -s /nolog <<EOF
CONNECT usr1/pwd
SET LINES 4000 TRIMS ON FEED OFF PAGES 49999
SET MARKUP HTML ON SPOOL ON HEAD "<TITLE>SQL*Plus Report</title> -
<STYLE TYPE='TEXT/CSS'><!--BODY {background: ffffc6} --></STYLE>"
SET ECHO OFF
SPOOL myfile.html
SELECT * FROM my_view;
SPOOL OFF
EOF

Not sure about your exact requirements but here goes my initial thoughts:

multiple selects in the same spool file:
SPOOL myfile.html
SELECT * FROM my_view;
SELECT * FROM my_view1;
SPOOL OFF


Or a union but the columns form all the views need to be the same in number and data types:
SPOOL myfile.html
SELECT * FROM my_view
union all
SELECT * FROM my_view1;
SPOOL OFF

Of if you want multiple html files, multiple spools
SPOOL myfile.html
SELECT * FROM my_view;

SPOOL myfile1.html
SELECT * FROM my_view1;
SPOOL OFF

Is it possible to also right a heading for each table that would go right before each table?

Using which method?  I'm still not sure exactly what your desired results are.

Headings are based on the column names.  For the methods above except for the union, column names should be what they are in the tables.

I want something like that:

                Title here
---------------------------------------
|  field1  | field2    |firld3       |
---------------------------------------
|             |              |             |
____________________________


          Title for the second table
---------------------------------------
|  field1  | field2    |firld3       |
---------------------------------------
|             |              |             |

Still not answering all the questions:
One file for all tables, each table in a separate file?

spool one.html
select 'title 1' from dual;
select * from view1;
spool off

spool two.html
select 'title 2' from dual;
select * from view2
spool off

etc


you could, instead of using select 'title' from dual, use sql*plus formatting commands like TTITLE or BTITLE

As sdstuber posted in http:#a39174838, use TTITLE.

#!/usr/bin/ksh

export ORACLE_SID=DBName
ORAENV_ASK=NO
. oraenv
sqlplus -s /nolog <<EOF
CONNECT usr1/pwd
SET LINES 4000 TRIMS ON FEED OFF PAGES 49999
SET MARKUP HTML ON SPOOL ON HEAD "<TITLE>SQL*Plus Report</title> -
<STYLE TYPE='TEXT/CSS'><!--BODY {background: ffffc6} --></STYLE>"
SET ECHO OFF
SPOOL myfile.html
TTITLE CENTER 'Title here'
SELECT * FROM my_view;

TTITLE CENTER 'Title for the second table'
SELECT * FROM second_table;


SPOOL OFF
EOF

I agree that a split should be awarded since sdstuber posted TTITLE.

I just showed you how to implement it once I got the complete requirements.

sdstuber, I am sorry, I didn't notice you were the one who posted TTITLE first!
