Hello

I want to generate a spool for only a query result.
I execute the following sql commands, but the file not contains only the result :
set heading off;
set echo off;
spool users.sql;
select username from dba_users;
spool off;

Thanks

create a file containing the commands
for example qryusers.sql

then execute the command file
@qryusers.sql

you will lose the lines starting with the prompt (mostly SQL>

I have 1 empty line in front and 2 afterwards
add
set newpage none
to the command file and you loose the first empty line
I did not figure out to remove the last 2

please don't reopen but what I think you need is:
bash# echo "select username from dba_users;" | sqlplus -S user/pass@sid >users.sql

Open in new window

or with here document and query files:
bash# sqlplus -S user/pass@sid >users.sql <<"EOF"
@qryusers.sql
EOF

Open in new window


The -S flag will beautifully trim most if not all of what you don't need.
