cannot print the columns i want with awk.

hi friends!

i have a script where a execute a veritas command, available_media wich retrieves me a list of tapes .lst

then i execute

cat /tmp/listtapes.lst | grep -v VL |sed '/^$/d'|awk -F, '{print $1, $3, $4, $9}
' > /tmp/media1.lst

but it prints all the columns instead of the four im orderin with awk...

anyone can help me??

maybe the cause is that veritas command generates spool headers like this and is not compatible.

THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Code:
awk 'NF && !/VL/{print $1, $3, $4, $9}' /tmp/listtapes.lst

If the output of listtapes is something like what you've copied there, why would you put that -F, ?
