Hello daveaztig14,

A simple way could be put all the directories information into a Input_file and you could read it from there like for an example as follows.
Code:
cat Input_file
/files05/home/chgtprd/MXS/inb/CHTR/FTR/9/
/files05/home/chgtprd/GT/outb/CHTR/VRZ/9/send
/files05/home/chgtprd/GT/outb/CHTR/VRZ/9/send_ia/success
/files05/home/chgtprd/GT/outb/CHTR/FTR/9/send
/files05/home/chgtprd/GT/outb/CHTR/FTR/9/send_ia
/files05/home/chgtprd/GT/outb/CHTR/FTR/997/send
/files05/home/chgtprd/GT/outb/CHTR/VRZ/997/send

Then following will be code changes for previously code shown by Don, please try this and let us know how it goes then.
Code:
#!/bin/ksh
bad_found=0
log='/home/abainzd/logfile.txt'
while read dir
 do
cd "$dir" && for file in *
do      if [ -f "$file" ] && ! /usr/xpg4/bin/grep -q FTRORD "$file"
         then    printf 'Invalid file "%s" in "%s"\n' "$file" "$dir"
                bad_found=1
         fi
done > "$log"
        if [ $bad_found -eq 0 ]
        then    printf 'There are no invalid files in "%s"\n' "$dir" > "$log"
         fi
done < "Input_file"

NOTE: I haven't tested above code.

Thanks,
R. Singh

Hello daveaztig14,

My sincere apologies, somehow I have not written do after while, could you please try following.
Code:
#!/bin/ksh
bad_found=0
log='/home/abainzd/logfile.txt'
while read dir
do
cd "$dir" && for file in *
do      if [ -f "$file" ] && ! /usr/xpg4/bin/grep -q FTRORD "$file"
         then    printf 'Invalid file "%s" in "%s"\n' "$file" "$dir"
                bad_found=1
         fi
done > "$log"
        if [ $bad_found -eq 0 ]
        then    printf 'There are no invalid files in "%s"\n' "$dir" > "$log"
         fi
done < "Input_file"

Thanks,
R. Singh

Hello daveaztig14,

Could you please change Input_file to /home/abainzd/Input_file and let me know how it goes.
Code:
#!/bin/ksh
bad_found=0
log='/home/abainzd/logfile.txt'
while read dir
do
cd "$dir" && for file in *
do      if [ -f "$file" ] && ! /usr/xpg4/bin/grep -q FTRORD "$file"
         then    printf 'Invalid file "%s" in "%s"\n' "$file" "$dir"
                bad_found=1
         fi
done > "$log"
        if [ $bad_found -eq 0 ]
        then    printf 'There are no invalid files in "%s"\n' "$dir" > "$log"
         fi
done < "/home/abainzd/Input_file"

Thanks,

If we start from my script in post #32 in this thread:
Code:
#!/bin/ksh
bad_found=0
dir='/files05/home/chgtprd/MXS/inb/CHTR/FTR/9/'
log='/files05/home/chgtprd/logfile.txt'

cd "$dir" && for file in *
do	if [ -f "$file" ] && ! /usr/xpg4/bin/grep -q FTRORD "$file"
	then	printf 'Invalid file "%s" in "%s"\n' "$file" "$dir"
		bad_found=1
	fi
done > "$log"
if [ $bad_found -eq 0 ]
then	printf 'There are no invalid files in "%s"\n' "$dir" > "$log"
fi

we find two things (marked in red) that you want to change as you process various directories. We can't simply use RavinderSingh13's proposal because we need to modify not only the directory as we process different directories, but also change the search pattern, and because just putting the code I had in a simple loop will overwrite the results of all but the last directory processed in the output log file. So, instead of just having the directories listed in Input_file (as Ravinder suggested), we also need to have the corresponding search patterns in that file. With the data you supplied in post #35, that would be something like:
Code:
/files05/home/chgtprd/MXS/inb/CHTR/FTR/9 FTRORD
/files05/home/chgtprd/GT/outb/CHTR/VRZ/9/send CHTRVRZPRD
/files05/home/chgtprd/GT/outb/CHTR/VRZ/9/send_ia/success CHTRVRZPRD
/files05/home/chgtprd/GT/outb/CHTR/FTR/9/send CHTRVRZPRD
/files05/home/chgtprd/GT/outb/CHTR/FTR/9/send_ia CHTRFTRORDP
/files05/home/chgtprd/GT/outb/CHTR/FTR/997/send CHTRFTRORDP
/files05/home/chgtprd/GT/outb/CHTR/VRZ/997/send CHTRFTRORDP

I used a space between the directory name and the search pattern (since there are no spaces in any of your pathnames and there are no spaces in any of your search patterns). The character chosen to separate these two pieces of data can be any character except a NUL byte, but needs to a character that is not in any of your directory pathnames. Using a space or a tab character as the separator allows us to use the shell's default field separators to keep the code as simple as possible.

Since this file contains configuration data for your script, let us call this a configuration file. And, if the script that uses this file is named dave2.sh, let us name this configuration file dave2.conf. And, your script needs to know where to find this file (just like it needs to know where to write your log file). So, we will make a few minor modifications to the script above to:
  1. add a variable specifying where to find your configuration file,
  2. add a loop to process each directory (with its associated search pattern),
  3. move the output redirection so the output from each pass through the loop will be written to your log file instead the output from each pass overwriting the output from the previous pass, and
  4. since your search patterns are all fixed strings, use grep -Fq (instead of just grep -q) to make it run slightly faster.
That leads to something like:
Code:
#!/bin/ksh
config='/files05/home/chgtprd/dave2.conf'
log='/files05/home/chgtprd/logfile.txt'

while read dir pattern
do	bad_found=0
	cd "$dir" && for file in *
	do	if [ -f "$file" ] && ! /usr/xpg4/bin/grep -Fq "$pattern" "$file"
		then	printf 'Invalid file "%s" in "%s"\n' "$file" "$dir"
			bad_found=1
		fi
	done
	if [ $bad_found -eq 0 ]
	then	printf 'There are no invalid files in "%s"\n' "$dir"
	fi
done < "$config" > "$log"

Note that this assumes that you have placed the file dave2.conf in the same directory where you want the log file to be placed. You can choose a different location for that file if you want to, but wherever you put it, an absolute pathname for that file has to be the value assigned to the variable config at the start of the script.

This is totally untested, but should come close to what you seem to want.
