On one UNIX server I have a ksh script and from my script I need to connect to another UNIX server to an Oracle database and insert some data.

So far I got:

sqlplus 'username/pwd@(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS_LIST=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=myHostname)(PORT=1521)))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=myDB)))' >> output.log

to connect to the server but how do I run an insert statement?

Assuming you have a list of values you can embed in the script, try the code below.  It is called a HERE document.

sqlplus 'username/pwd@(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS_LIST=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=myHostname)(PORT=1521)))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=myDB)))' << EOF >> output.log
insert into some_table values('hello','world');
commit;
exit
EOF


If you have something else, please explain.

slightwv, are there any advantages to put the entry into tnsnames.ora and just use an alias, over listing the whole tns entry in the script?

There are pro's and con's.

If everything is in the tnsnames.ora file and all apps/scripts use it then you can easily change database servers and/or database names and no app/script needs to change.

The counter-point:
You need to rely on another configuration file for your apps/scripts to work.
