awk combined with an IF

Hi everybody!

I try to printout a csv-file with the exeption of cell $1 and $4.
what i tried so far:
Code:
awk '{for(i = 1; i<=NF; i++);if(i == 1 || i == 4);else print($i)}' file.csv

..any ideas how it work and why my example fails?

Thanks in advance!

Maybe?

Code:
awk '{$1=$4=":"; gsub(/:,/, "")};1' OFS=, FS=, file.csv
