I've tried numerous combinations to execute a script in SQL*PLUS within the Solaris environment. Unfortunately, nothing worked. On Windows it works fine.
For example, I have a script call test.sql located in /tmp/dbscripts directory. When I start up SQL*PLUS in Solaris and run the following statement:
...it doesn't work. I keep getting 'unable to open file'
What is the proper way to execute a script within the Unix environment?
That should work. Do you have appropriate permission on that file?
ls -l /tmp/dbscripts/test.sql
The perfmissions were right, the spelling was wrong. Apparently, Unix wants EXACT spelling.
What a pain!
computers are funny like that...

First the user must had the right that it can open this script and rights that it can snap to directory
Another problem is if the script is written under windows and is only copy to Solaris, there are a lot of problems with the next line.
Then you must copy this script and generate to solaris
under fromdos test.sql
So you have a script which goes under solaris.
