exclude characters in echo command please help

Hi all,
I wrote one code and i face some difficulties to exclude some characters from the echo command

more specifically the last command is

Code:
echo $a "${RESULT}" >> results_data_srcip

the results which i have taken are:

nfcapd.200908250000 -.352228
nfcapd.200908250005 -.345085

from these results I want to exclude the characters " nfcapd.20090825 " from the echo command. Does anyone know how to do this? Please i need your help Smilie

This will leave out the whole line:
Code:
echo ... | grep -v nfcapd.20090825 >> outfile

If only the pattern should be excluded:
Code:
echo ... | sed 's/nfcapd.20090825//g' >> outfile

No need to use sed
Code:
echo ${a:16} "${RESULT}" >> results_data_srcip
