Data help need on nawk script

Dear experts
I have a big file containing several profiles each flagged with "PROFILE" at the beginning of each one. I am trying to use the following command in cshell to seperate each profile and save each one in seperate file. I wrote a script as following:

nawk -v i=0 '{if($1~/PROFILE/) i=i+1, print $0 }' filename > filename$i

I was expecting that it will create different files like file1, file2, ... for each profile but it is not the case. It may need to introduce variable i somehow to shell environment but how can I manage " i " in nawk command can be recognized in shell environment.
Thanks in advances for your advises.

nawk '$1 ~ /PROFILE/ {out=FILENAME ++i; print $0 > out}' filename

Thanks a lot for your prompt reply. It works. Just as a question is it possible if you please recommend a good reference in unix scripting that you prefer.

That is, convert space (in single quotes) to newline (in single quotes).
