Please do not leave people guessing. Show a representative sample of input, desired output, attempts at a solution and specify what OS and versions are being used.

@Scrutinizer: i have not written any code because i dont know the solution.
suppose a text file contains the following code"
 as A
inner join  rrdwst00.TRWPI_PA_LOAN_REIMB_FACT PI
and A.REBATE_REWARD_ACCT_NAT_ID=124612528 and A.CM_NAT_ID=410822498

i just want to know command which can tell me what is the next word which comes after the "FROM" keyword?

output should be : "rrdwst00.TRWBE_ALLOC_REDEMPTION_FACT TRWBE_ST "

thanks in advance
