sed and awk giving error ./ line 13: sed: command not found

I am running a script in bash environment .In the script i am using sed and awk commands which when executed individually from terminal they are getting executed normally but when i give these sed and awk commands in the script it is giving the below errors :-
./ line 13: sed: command not found
./ line 15: awk: command not found

Can some one help me to figure out the problem.

BASH is your shell, what is your system? uname -a if you don't know.

You may be having PATH problems if this is a UNIX system. Or if this is Windows via Cygwin or what have you, awk and sed may not be installed (they are applications, not part of bash)

Please post your script.

I cannot think of a more vague question then this....
Most likely providing the details of the script itself would be a good start...

Just a wild guess: use full paths when calling those commands in your script.

Great, that's one question answered, please answer my other by posting your script.

(Technically, Linux is not UNIX, but that's a bit legalistic.)

These are commands i gave :-

sed -n '13,$'p /opt/sat/inp/sampledata.txt > /opt/sat/inp/sample2.txt

awk '{print $5}' /opt/sat/inp/sample2.txt > /opt/sat/inp/sample3.txt
