Unanswered: IF command to find the status
I have a requirement where i need to capture the values in Oracle table. The Column name is Status with values either 'F' or 'S' i.e., Failure or Success. Now i need to find if the table contains value 'F'. For failure, it has to return value 0 and for a success then it has to return 2.
lets say for example,
i fire a query on oracle table: select status from ctrl_table;
and if it returns the values S S F S S
then my script should return a failure message with code 0.
and if the query returns S S S S S
then the script should return a success message with code 2.
Please throw a light on this problem as i am a newbie to Shell Scripts.

You can use the "exit" SQL Plus command to set the status:
VAR RC NUMBER; BEGIN Select Decode(Status,'SSFSS',0,'SSSS',2,1) Into :RC From Status_Table Where Status_Key='MYPROC1'; END; / EXIT :rc
NOTE: Normally status 0 means OK and other that 0 means Failure.
