    How can I run an SQL command from Unix command prompt?

    The trouble is, if I run in following way

    $ORACLE_HOME/bin/sqlplus user/pwd@database @'/data/src/myfile.sql'

    after running the script, the prompt remain within SQL Plus environment. I want it to get back in Unix command prompt.

    Thanx

    Add an EXIT to the end of your script call?

    Code:
    $ORACLE_HOME/bin/sqlplus user/pwd@database @'/data/src/myfile.sql' exit

    Or run a shell script.

    You can put an exit in you sql script as waitecj has suggested.
    Or you can write a shell script as Stecal has suggested.

    As an example
    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/sh
    export ORACLE_HOME=/usr/export/oracle/9.2/bin
    export ORACLE_SID=mysid
    export LD_LIBRARY_DIR=$ORACLE_HOME/lib
    
    sqlplus /nolog << EOF
    connect / as sysdba
    --insert sql here
    EOF
    exit
    Of course I might have missed something as I am only a developer.
