If you want to print all the zones:
grep "^zone" file

To print a specific collection (i.e. the first one) you can do something like:
awk '/^Total Collection/ && /\$10291/ {c=1;next}c && /^Total Collection/{c=0}c' file

Hi Franklin,

Thanks for your reply.Query is, i am searching on Total collection so need to print all the information between them.Total collection may be n & my zones will also vary.

nawk ' BEGIN {FS="Total\ Collection"} {print $1}' /tmp/myfile

Can you explain what's wrong with the solutions above?

If you don't get the correct output, post a better input file and the desired output.
