I hope u cant directly call a SQL file or UNIX shell script from job sequence....
Create a routine to call/run the script file. Then call this in job sequence using routine activity.

Note: It is job sequence and not sequencer. Sequencer is the name of an activity in Job sequences.

Shell scripts can be called in the sequences by using "Execute command activity".   In this activity type following command :

bash /path of your script/

bash command is used to run the shell script.

"Execute command activity " is used to run a command from Unix.

bash /path of script/ is also a unix command.hence it can also be called from Execute command activity of a job sequence.
