    procedure call from SQL*Plus in Korn Shell Script

    I am trying to excute a procedure from sqlplus, truncate_audit_table. I doesn't execute. If I do it manually
    it executes. I have tried multiple ways, as below. This is inside a Korn Shell script that creates the procedure
    and counts the aud$ table. All that works, but does not truncate the aud$ table. It does not do it, no error, just
    passes it by. Does anybody know why?



    ${ORACLE_HOME}/bin/sqlplus -s / << EOF | tee -a ${LOG}
    set feedback on
    @/backup/oracle/orcl/audit/truncate_audit_table.sql
    select count(*) from sys.aud$;
    exec truncate_audit_table;
    exit
    EOF


    ${ORACLE_HOME}/bin/sqlplus -s / << EOF | tee -a ${LOG}
    set feedback on
    @/backup/oracle/orcl/audit/truncate_audit_table.sql
    select count(*) from sys.aud$;
    begin
    truncate_audit_table;
    end;
    exit
    EOF

    This is the procedure that is being called:

    create procedure truncate_audit_table
    as
    begin
    execute immediate 'truncate table sys.aud$';
    end;
    /

    Put all things sql in the sql file and run.
    BTW why do you need the count(*) for?

    In the second example there is no slash after the PL/SQL block. I'm not sure what the two versions represent though. Are you saying neither works?

    Are you executing shell as well as sqlplus with same user account or different users?
