Print only lines where fields concatenated match strings

Hello everyone,

Maybe somebody could help me with an awk script.

I have this input (field separator is comma ","):

If the resulting string of concatenate fields from field2 to last field is different to the following strings:

Then print those lines, so the output should be:

I hope the explanation is good enough.

Thanks in advance

This seems to do what you want:
awk '{  x = substr($0, index($0, ","))
        gsub(/,/, "", x)
        if(x !~ /M\|(N\|JU|H\|JU|H\|JS)\|Q\|P98101011/) print $0, "Different"
}' OFS="," input

If you're using a Solaris/Sun OS system, use /usr/xpg4/bin/awk or nawk, instead of awk.

Hello Don,

Many thanks for your answer, I've tested with 53 lines and worked fine.

My real file has more than a million lines, I hope work relative fast and with correct output.

Many thanks again!
