the ouptut will be the whole record. I need to find a match inside field 9, but will print the whole record when I find it.

Could you post a sample?

Code:
Field1|Field2|Field3|2012-01-25||Field6|Field7|Field8|000/C///run (c-ab123, US) jobs.|Field10|Field11|Field12
Field1|Field2|Field3|2012-01-25||Field6|Field7|Field8|000/C///run (c-ab123, 897) jobs.|Field10|Field11|Field12
Field1|Field2|Field3|3-13-12||Field6|Field7|Field8|000/C///pour  897//a-1234 LBG|Field10|Field11|Field12
Field1|Field2|Field3|3-13-12||Field6|Field7|Field8|000/C///pour  US//a-cdef LBG|Field10|Field11|Field12

Post 14 had ALL my sample records, but the ones with the "-" are the problematic ones. You guys have helped me with pretty much all the non "-" ones. Here is a snippet of the most common variations. I just can't provide live data so I have replaced most of it with scrubbed data. I used bold to help point out what exactly i'm trying to find. Hopefully that helps.

Try:
Code:
awk --posix -F\| '$9~/\([a-z]-[a-z]{2}[0-9]{3}, [A-Z0-9]{2,3}\)|[A-Z0-9]{2,3}\/\/[a-z]-[a-z0-9]{4}/' infile
