Help in developing an awk code

set -x

#To calculate debit and credit 
DEBIT=`awk -F, '{value=$28 ;if(value<0) {debit+=value}} END {print debit}' $FILENAME`
CREDIT=`awk -F, '{value=$28 ;if(value>0) {credit+=value}} END {print credit}' $FILENAME`
#This part is not working since the debit value is negative ( am trying to figure out a for this too :()
#if [[ "$DEBIT" -ne "$CREDIT" ]]; then
#echo "Debit and Credit does not match"
#exit 9
#To Move the leading negative side and to make it trailing negative sign
nawk 'BEGIN {FS=","} { if(index($28,"-") > 0){print substr($28,2,length($0))"-"} else {print $28}}' $FILENAME >> NEW_FILE 

#MM=`date +%m`
#YY=`date +%Y`
#To read file and create new file with hardcodings and column reformatting 
also reading only file starting with 3 
cat $FILENAME |grep ^3 | while read line
echo "$line" | nawk ' BEGIN {FS=","} {print("5","date"$1,$13,"$14",$2,$5)}' >> New_file
exit 0

The above code is just bits and pieces

Let me state the requirement
1. I have input file with comma separated values
2. The input file contains leading negative values which I should make it as trailing
3. The first column I will have to hard code with 5 and second column should be system date (YY and MM) then around 10 columns which I can directly pick from input file and just reorder the positions and at last hard code X

I am attaching both inputs as well as out put file. Please help me to solve this...
Thank you

The output you provide doesn't correspond to the input you provided (or if it does, i don't get the way it is built from it ...)

Yes the output file is very diff from input basically a lot of reformatting has to be done ...
like first column in the out put will have hard coding then second column will have sysdate and other columns are a rearraggement of the order of columns from input file .Also there is a column in input file with amount having negtavive sign(-567.00) i would want this also to be changed and printed as (567.00-) and (78.98+) (in case of positive files)
