One more option which no-one else mentioned (probably because it doesn't
use DB-Access) is to obtain SQLCMD from the IIUG web site.

sqlcmd -d test -cx -f /export/home/user1/emp 2>emp.log

The -d specifies the database; the -c says continue on error (the default
is to abort - which rolls back transactions if they're open, of course);
the -x says trace statements; the -f (not strictly necessary) says the
following name is a file. SQLCMD is disciplined about where it writes
information - error messages and trace output all go to stderr. One of
the reasons I wrote SQLCMD - or, more accurately, its progenitor, RDSQL -
was because ISQL (in the days before DB-Access) was not disciplined about
its output formatting and where it sent its output. SQLCMD is designed
for use in shell scripts -- it does the things I need it to do. Note that

(You only need the '-f' option explicitly if the filename contains a
space. SQLCMD uses a simple heuristic; if the argument isn't an option
argument and it contains one or more spaces, clearly, it is an SQL
comment; no spaces, clearly it is a file name. Use -e 'expression' and -f
'filename' to be explicit. The only single word commands in SQL are
'commit' and 'rollback' - the 'work' is optional - and in SQLCMD the
'dbnames' command, which is deprecated in favour of 'info databases'

(Be aware: SQLCMD 72.06 has a buglet in internal.c if you don't have a C99
aware C compiler, or you run such a compiler in strict C90 mode. There's
a KLUDGE() macro ahead of a variable declaration, and the KLUDGE macro
expands to some executable code, so you get an error about variable
declarations must come before executable code. Either delete the KLUDGE
line, or move it to just after the variable declaration. I'm hoping to
release an upgraded and fixed version of SQLCMD soon, but I've got one bug
in current versions of CSDK that I still have to work around -- obscure to
the point of confusion, but since I'm trying to support the DB-Access
style backslash-space notation meaning a zero-length non-null VARCHAR or
NVARCHAR or LVARCHAR, and the code I've got doesn't work properly on
NVARCHAR, it may be a week or two yet. There's a conference thingy
absorbing quite a lot of effort at the moment.)

Sorry about the self-advertisement...
