loop on all db for generate a file containing all db options


I try to loop on all db for generate a file containing all db options, only one line is generated on $WorkFileoptions.
How can I do it ?
# Get list db on table db

sqlplus -s /nolog << eof | grep -w 'AAAA' | awk '{ print $1"_"$2".world" }' > $DbList
        connect tool/tool@TOOL
        set line 400
        select HOSTNAME,DBNAME, 'AAAA' from LIST_DB ;

for db in `cat $DbList`
      sqlplus -s tooldb/tooldb@$db @Checkoptions > $WorkFileoptions

A single redirect "> $WorkFileoptions" does an "open truncate".

A double redirect "> $WorkFileoptions" does an open append.

You are overwriting the file in every loop.

Try this:
#clear out the file
echo > $WorkFileoptions
for db in `cat $DbList`
       sqlplus -s tooldb/tooldb@$db @Checkoptions >> $WorkFileoptions

Thanks, but I have only the result for the first db.

Have you checked the file to see that there is more than one line in the $DbList file?

Also, you are doing a lot of work to get the information into the file.  This should be much better.

sqlplus -s /nolog << eof  > $DbList
        connect tool/tool@TOOL
        set line 400 feed off echo off trimspool on pause off pages 0
        select HOSTNAME|| '_' || DBNAME || '.world' from LIST_DB ;

echo "" > $WorkFileoptions
for db in `cat $DbList`
      sqlplus -s tooldb/tooldb@$db @Checkoptions >> $WorkFileoptions
