Sql script to spool / save to a disk file (in YYYYMMDD.spl) a select output

Last Modified: 2020-02-10
I'm no sql scripting person & need an sql script to
print out (ie save to disk file) the list of dormant
users from our Oracle DB for last 30 days:

select * from ACTION_LOG where ACTION_DTTM >= trunc(sysdate-30)
  and ACTION_CD in ('SORAS') order by ACTION_DTTM DESC;

Will need someone to prefix it with
set spool ....   DormantAccts_YYYYMMDD.spl

to save output to a spool file which we'll email out
