Error while executing a script

My script is as below :
for line in `cat Results.txt`
FEILD1=`echo $line |awk -F"|" '{print $1}'`
FEILD2=`echo $line |awk -F"|" '{print $2}'`
FEILD3=`echo $line |awk -F"|" '{print $3}'`
FEILD4=`echo $line |awk -F"|" '{print $4}'`

Hi All,

I am trying to execute the above script. Ideally I shud get all that before the fisrt '|' in $1 anything before secon pipe and after first pipe in $2 etc. But the echo of my result is not as expected could you please help.

Might be the fact that you assign the values to FEILDx variables, but try to print FIELDx variables?

That said, this script can be written just as easily as
awk -F '|' '{print $1,$2,$3,$4}' Results.txt

It seems a simple typo..

but I need to use the FEILD 1, 2 ,3 etc as parameters further and hence I have to store them somewhere

Hi Thanks

I corrected the typo still there is something wrong

My Results.txt contains
374|Jane - Sensitivities (EUI8)|SYCEUI8_yyyyMMdd_RISK.CSV, SYCEUI8_yyyyMMdd_PCA.CSV, RMMEUI8_yyyyMMdd_ORIGINAL_Details.CSV|3
472|Jane - Sensitivities (PRP2)|SYCPRP2_yyyyMMdd_RISK.CSV, SYCPRP2_yyyyMMdd_PCA.CSV, RMMPRP2_yyyyMMdd_ORIGINAL_Details.CSV|3

So my feilds shud look like
FEILD 1 = 374
FEILD 2 =Jane - Sensitivities (EUI8)|
FEILD 4 = 3

which is not happening at the moment. Can some one please help. i have to send this code for UAT by tomorrow . Please help

Not sure what your problem is, but the following works for me:

#! /bin/bash

cat results.txt | \
while read LINE
  F_1=$( echo $LINE | awk -F '|' '{ print $1 }' )
  F_2=$( echo $LINE | awk -F '|' '{ print $2 }' )
  F_3=$( echo $LINE | awk -F '|' '{ print $3 }' )
  F_4=$( echo $LINE | awk -F '|' '{ print $4 }' )
  echo "F_1 = '$F_1'"
  echo "F_2 = '$F_2'"
  echo "F_3 = '$F_3'"
  echo "F_4 = '$F_4'"

exit 0

# [game over]

[house@universe] sh test.bash
F_1 = '374'
F_2 = 'Jane - Sensitivities (EUI8)'
F_4 = '3'
F_1 = '472'
F_2 = 'Jane - Sensitivities (PRP2)'
F_4 = '3'
