Problem facing command using shell

Dear Brothers!

Need your help for the case where I am running one command on prompt and its giving us the correct output, but when i use the same command from shell its directs no output.Smilie

the command on command prompt is
ls -ltrh * | nawk '{if ($5~ '/$'M'/') print $9}' | grep -v "Aug 21" | grep "nohup"

and if I use the same command in shell is directs no output
ls -ltrh * | nawk '{if ($5~ '/$'M'/') print $9}' | grep -v "'$date'" | grep "nohup" > output.txt

Please help Smilie

Check to be sure $date is the same as 'Aug 21' may not be, especially if there's a format applied.

Otherwise, please be more clear on your distinction between command-line and you mean interactive shell and script, or perhaps cron, which uses an altogether separate shell instance?
