It will capture everything displayed to the screen.

Don't forget to spool off at the end.

You might also need to use the set echo on depending on exactly what you are after.


Just do some simple tests:
spool myfile.txt
select 'Hello' from dual;
select 'World' from dual;
spool off

Hi,Thanks for reply.This command seems to be working fine.I executed this
spool myfile.txt
select 'Hello' from dual;
select 'World' from dual;
spool off
and it recorded logs for select outputquery.I want to understand use of set echo,If I need that too?

Regards,

That test showed the selects because you see them on the screen... remember the spool command captures what is displayed.

When you execute a script, do you see the commands?

Take the test one step farther.

create a file: myscript.sql with the following contents:
select 'Hello' from dual;
select 'World' from dual;


Then from the SQL prompt:
spool myfile.txt
@myscript
spool off


What is in the file?

Then experiment with the echo command...
