Execute an SQL script file in SQLPlus - Oracle

To execute a script file in SQLPlus, type @ and then the file name.
SQL > @{file}

For example, if your file was called script.sql, you'd type the following command at the SQL prompt:
SQL > @script.sql

The above command assumes that the file is in the current directory. ( the current directory is usually the directory that you were located in before you launched SQLPlus.)

If you need to execute a script file that is not in the current directory, you would type:
SQL > @{path}{file}

For example:
SQL > @/oracle/scripts/script.sql

This command would run a script file called script.sql that was located in the /oracle/scripts directory.
