sql output to screen and file

Hi Experts,

I'm running a sql script from a windows batch file.  I'm out putting the query out to a text file.  I'd like to output to the screen as I have prompts for variables as it runs. It currently just outputs to the output.txt file.
Here's the bat file contents .  Thanks !!!
@echo off
setlocal
sqlplus / as sysdba @query.sql >output.txt
echo DONE --- outputs are in output.txt
endlocal

Instead of redirecting to output.txt try spooling.

Inside query.sql:
spool output.txt
...the rest of the SQL
spool off

@echo off
setlocal
sqlplus / as sysdba @query.sql
echo DONE --- outputs are in output.txt
endlocal
