Connecting from sqlplus / Unix

Below is a statement from Unix shell scripting.

DUMMY=`sqlplus <<ENDSQL
  ${MMS_ORA_USER}/${MMS_ORA_PASS}
  whenever sqlerror exit failure;
  whenever oserror exit failure;
  SET ECHO ON SERVEROUTPUT ON
  BEGIN ${PROC};
  END;
  /
  EXIT
  ENDSQL`

How can I achieve the same from CMD prompt/sql plus?

Try this:
# 1) You set the variables:
MMS_ORA_USER=SCOTT
MMS_ORA_PASS=tiger

cat - <<!  >PROC.sql
DECLARE cnt Number:=0;
BEGIN
  SELECT COUNT(*) INTO cnt
  FROM USER_OBJECTS;
  DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE(''Object count is:''||cnt);
END;'
/
!

#2) You execute sql plus:

dummy=`sqlplus  /nolog <<EOSQL
conn ${MMS_ORA_USER}/${MMS_ORA_PASS}
whenever sqlerror exit failure;
SET ECHO ON SERVEROUTPUT ON
@&&PROC
/
EXIT
EOSQL`

Windows does not have 'here' scripts.

You cannot really do everything in the same script like you can to in Unix.

It's best to create the .sql file that has all the Oracle SQL commands then a CMD script that calls it.

For example:
q.sql contains:  select 'Hello' from dual;

q.cmd contains: sqlplus user/password @q.sql

why wouldn't you be able to do everything in 1 cmd script ?

create a cmd script which creates the sql on the fly and calls it

set oracle_sid=sid
set sqlfile=c:\scripts\test.sql
(
echo.spool test.txt
echo.select 'hello' from dual;
echo.spool off
echo.exit
) > %sqlfile%

sqlplus -L -S "/ as sysdba" @%sqlfile%

Open in new window

If you go with the two file version I posted it in http:#a39720559

one file q.sql has:
select 'Hello' from dual;

The file called q.bat (or a CMD file) has:
sqlplus user/password @c:\pathTosql\q.sql

Then from your prompt:
c:\myscripts\q.bat
