I'm outputting a literal string value to an output file, however, Linux isn't playing by SQL's rules. The ampersand character which I'm trying to disply as a knowledge base link is screwing up the output. Typically, the "&&" is the escape for displaying "&" in SQL output, however, this doesn't work inside a shell script.
Does anyone know the escape characters to disply the ampersand properly for the following?
I've include double ampersand, as per SQL's rules...
