Check man page or usage document of the command. It should have option to output the code only (in fact, it should be the default). If not, the person who wrote the program doesn't understand Unix.
In case of the latter situation, do
Code:
awk -F'[:, ]' '/Uniqe Code:/{print $4}'

if it doesn't work for your awk, then
Code:
awk '/Uniqe Code:/{sub(",", "", $2);print $2}'
