    Hi Joe,

    You have to write two file one is the batch file and the other is the sql file.I will write the steps below I have also attached an example here

    1) create a batch file on NT orclrun.bat as follows

    set ORACLE_SID=orcl
    c:\oracle\ora81\bin\sqlplus system/manager @c:\first.sql

    2) create a first.sql file as follows

    spool c:\result.txt
    select * from cat;
    select user from dual;
    exec procedurename;
    spool off;

    Iam creating a batch file in the first step and Iam invoking sqlplus over there and directly in turn executing first.sql from there and all the commands I have stored in can store all ur sql commands over there and I have inserted the spool command over there so that you can verify the result, and offcourse experiment on the batch file like passing parameters to the batch file for username,password that is batch files have parameters from %1 to %8 for example the sqlplus Invoking will look like this

    sqlplus %1/%2

    so when you execute the batch file you have to pass parameters like this from the command prompt

    orclrun.bat system manager


    system will be %1

    manager will be %2

    It works for

    I am not the person who posted the above question, but I used it to work on similar problem and it work just fine.
    I created two scripts as you said and everything ran just great.

    set ORACLE_SID=mysid
    D:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\BIN\sqlplus.exe username/password@mspdev

    create or replace procedure update_archive is
    insert into archive_data2 select * from archive_data1 where seq_guid in
    (select seq_guid from archive_data1 where upper(SUBSTR(controlnumber, -4,4))='001W');
    delete from archive_data1 where rownum > 0;
    end update_archive;
    exec update_archive;

    Try this:
    set ORACLE_SID=orcl
      echo exec MyProcedure;
      echo exit
    )|sqlplus system/manager >MyProcedure.log

    As you may remember now, it sets the instance to which you are trying to connect - in that particular case the name of the instance was "orcl"

    Just an FYI: If you're trying to run sql commands that contain a closing bracket, you'll need to triple delimit them with ^

    set ORACLE_SID=%2

    REM DATETIME1 is in the format MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI:ss
    SET DATETIME1=%date:~-10% %time:~0,8%

    echo insert into db_bu_status values ('%ORACLE_SID%', to_date('%DATETIME1%','mm/dd/yyyy hh24:mi:ss'^^^),'Running'^^^);
    echo commit;
    echo exit;
    ) | sqlplus system/manager@database > sqlplus_log.txt
