Hello bmk,

awk 'NR==1{             ##### When first line is getting read.
print $0",deptno";      ##### If above condition is TRUE and then print the first line with "deptno".
next}                   ##### next keyword is awk's built in keyword which helps us to skip all next statements. 
1' Input_file           ##### mentioning 1 here for making condition TRUE, because awk works on condition and then action method, so here we are making condition TRUE and not giving any action so default action will happen which is printing the line.
