Verify large file with Unix function

I am seeking help on one UNIX function writting. Please help.

I have a large file, named 'MyFile', It was tab-delmited. I am told that each line in 'MyFile' has 7 columns, and that the values in the 5th column are integers. How do I use shell functions (and standard LINUX/UNIX filters) to verify that these conditions were satisfied in 'MyFile'?
