grep data on 2nd line and 3rd column

How do I grep/check the on-hand value on the second line of show_prod script below? In this case it's a "3".

So if it's > 0, then run_this, otherwise, quit.

> ./show_prod
Product   Status   Onhand   Price
shoe   OK   3   1.1

What you want to run if that value is >0 ?
Also, show_prod is a script and it prints only the above two lines?
# 3  
Try this:

val=`sed -n '2p' show_prod | awk '{print $3}'`
if [ "$val" = "0" ] 
  ACTION - commands
  QUIT - commands

Assuming the 2 lines are the output of the command ./show_prod:
on-hand=$(./show_prod | awk 'NR==2{print $3}')
if [ $on-hand -gt 0 ]

That type of sed invocation is _never_ necessary. Look at Franklin52's code to see how to avoid creating an unnecessary process.

Thanks Alister for your input.
Anyway my command also work. But Franklin52 code is excellent...

Thank you everyone for your feedback/help. The code works.
