Sorry for the mess. I am not very used to forum rules as I haven't used this much but will try to follow the rules.

Thanks for your help.
I just need to add one more component to the awk, as I explained above.

This is the previous code:
  nawk -v "mydate=`date`" 'BEGIN{RS=""; FS="\</inputProvision\>"} {for(i=1;i<=NF;i++) { if ($i~/value=\"\"/) print mydate "\n" $i "</inputProvision>" "\n"}}' test

here $i contains several lines in xml tags. What I need is to fetch few values in $i and print it along $i.

Sample $i:
blah blah
<ATTR name="AB" value="123"/>
<ATTR name="CD" value="456"/>
<ATTR name="EF" value="789"/>
blah blah

When value="" matches, the awk statement prints $i,

should be printed along with $i.

I used:

 nawk -v "mydate=`date`" "var2=`grep AB $i`" "var3=`grep EF $i`" 'BEGIN{RS=""; FS="\</inputProvision\>"} {for(i=1;i<=NF;i++) { if ($i~/value=\"\"/) print var2 "\n" var3 mydate $i "</inputProvision>"}}' test

But this is entering into an infinite loop.

Thanks for your help..
