Hi Summer_cherry,

This scripts gives the output what is required. I do not have expertise in perl scripts, hence i was not able to proceed to next level. As I said in my original reqest, I need to take each column and apply some business rules.

It would be really great if this script can be converted into Unix shell script (may be an AWK). Then it would be easy for me to handle further logic.

Thanks,
Venkat
