                      -----            -----            IN 0/0
123456_PosWlist_S1CSVBox   -----            -----            IN 0/0
123456_PosWList_S1PubCSV 
                      06/17/2008 13:25            06/17/2008 13:47            IN 0/0

The above awk command is not working.

It should come like...

Code:
123456_PosWListCSV   -----            -----            IN 0/0
123456_PosWlist_S1CSVBox   -----            -----            IN 0/0
123456_PosWList_S1PubCSV  06/17/2008 13:25            06/17/2008 13:47            IN 0/0



again the same awk statement works fine for me ( how ever there are few extra spaces need to take care of)
Code:
TEST>awk 'NF==1 {p=$0;next} {$0=p$0;print;p=""}' rem.txt
123456_PosWListCSV                      -----            -----            IN 0/0
123456_PosWlist_S1CSVBox   -----            -----            IN 0/0
123456_PosWList_S1PubCSV                       06/17/2008 13:25                                           06/17/2008 13:47            IN 0/0
