Hi All,

I think I have found a workaround for the same.

sed '$s/^/        /' > temp

Hi Anchal,

Yes I am appending the file Line by Line so this will do for me. Many thanks for all your efforts I think this was not working because of the version of the Unix installed on my system.

Perheaps and old version of shell.
Try to replace the $(..) form by `...`:
awk -v total_records=`cat | wc -l` '{if(NR>(total_records - 2)) printf "\t%s\n", $0; else print $0}'

No Ok:
awk -v total_records = $(

awk -v total_records=$(

You have to delete the blank spaces
