There's also this sed method, which won't care whether OA 200909 is followed by a space or not:

$ echo "OA 200909C+0000000.5600000091.0000 OA 200909 P+0000000.5600000090.0000 PA 200909 C+0000000.5800000091.0000
" | sed 's/ \?\([OP]A\) \([0-9]*\) \?\([^ ]*\)/\1 \2 \3 20010125\n/g'
OA 200909 C+0000000.5600000091.0000 20010125
OA 200909 P+0000000.5600000090.0000 20010125
PA 200909 C+0000000.5800000091.0000 20010125

You mean something like this ?
fold -w 44 $myfile | awk -v f="$myfile" '{match(f,"[0-9]+");print $0 OFS substr(f,RSTART,RLENGTH)}'

I need to do this for all the folders in 'abc'. the script needs go to all the sub folder of abc say <date> folder and to dir folder and pick up the file asdf. Split the long line by 44 char then add the <date> folder as a seperate column.
At last I need to add all the data from the different files into a single file.
The date folder is generic.. it changes but not the sub directories..

find /abc -type f -name "*.dat" | while read f
p=$(echo $f | awk -F/ '{print $2}')
sed 's/ \(.+\)/\1/g' $f | fold -w 35 | sed "s/ *$/ $p/" >$f.output

I think you forgot a closing paren on line 3, and I think he wants '-w 44', not '-w 35', but other than that I think it should work.

ooops , thx!
... fixed

Regarding the -w 35 or 44 or whatever, of course it must be adjusted depending on the input (i just based my formatting on the given sample)

Thank you "ctsgnb" and "Morgan". the code is working with out the folder name..( if I remove /abc after find), but when i have the /abc it says directory does not exist.
This might be a silly question to U. can you please let me know why?
