can you print the output of the below commands
which ack
which sed

And try to use the absolute path of awk and sed

Did you try something like this :

/usr/bin/awk 'NR>12{print $5}' /opt/sat/inp/sampledata.txt > /opt/sat/inp/sample3.txt


(Specifying the full path of your awk command wherever it is... make sure your user has relevant access rights).

Also, could you do a copy/paste of the 17 first lines of your script in a code tags ?
I suspect an update to many variable (like PATH and/or IFS).
