If not can you post a different data sample Smilie

---------- Post updated at 10:50 PM ---------- Previous update was at 10:46 PM ----------

Or try this one
Code:
awk '$1~">"{f=0}$1~">" && $1~"sequence_2$|ABC_6$|SDF_7$"{f=1}f'  file

hehe, danmero....
you're right again?!
I believe is it because of my sed version's problem?
I got try your code at two different server.
One is awk version 3.1.5
Another one is awk version 3.1.3
I think is it because of this version difference problem issue, thus I can't get my desired output result at two different server, by using your code and deal with same data sequence?
thanks ya ^^
cheers Smilie
