If the order of the keys is always fixed and as you stat above, try
Code:
awk '/ZMIO:MSISDN|MOBILE STATION ISDN NUMBER/ {printf "%s%s", $0, OFS}    # either pattern matched, print to same line
     /VLR-ADDRESS/                                                        # pattern matched - take default action (print $0)
    ' file
< ZMIO:MSISDN=12345678:; MOBILE STATION ISDN NUMBER .... 12345678 VLR-ADDRESS .....
< ZMIO:MSISDN=98765432134:; MOBILE STATION ISDN NUMBER .... 98765432134 VLR-ADDRESS .... 96431324567

Hi

thanks for the reply,

Is there any way that I can insert a critieria that if the numerical in the line

Code:
ZMIO:MSISDN=12345678

matches

the numerical in this line

Code:
MOBILE STATION ISDN NUMBER ................. 12345678

only then the files will be selected otherwise no

Code:
$ awk  '/ZMIO:MSISDN/                  {tmp1 = $0; gsub(/[^0-9]/,"", $NF); key1 = $NF}
        /MOBILE STATION ISDN NUMBER/   {tmp2 = $0; gsub(/[^0-9]/,"", $NF); key2 = $NF}
        /VLR-ADDRESS/ && (key1==key2)  {printf "%s%s%s%s%s\n", tmp1, OFS, tmp2, OFS, $0}
