Awk Script Is Not Firing

Why is my awk script not firing and how can I confirm?

#!/usr/bin/ksh
# LU 5 FEB 2007 12:35
OLDDATE=`cat TIMEFILE`

for FILE in `find /home/Upload -prune -type f -newer TIMEFILE`
do
gawk -f convert_sun.awk "/home/Upload/$FILE"
done
date > TIMEFILE
# 2  
for FILE in `find /home/Upload/* -prune -type f -newer TIMEFILE
# 3  
Got An Error

SB008,

I am not seeing the file. I have 1 test file but it is not showing up.

I have tried to echo it.

SB008

This is the error that I am getting.

Awk will not print FILENAME

convert_sun.awk:11: fatal: cannot open file `/home/Upload//home/Upload/s_test.txt' for reading (No such file or directory)
# 5  
Code:
#!/usr/bin/ksh
# LU  5 FEB 2007  12:35
OLDDATE=`cat TIMEFILE`

for FILE in `find /home/Upload/* -prune -type f -newer TIMEFILE`
do
   gawk -f convert_sun.awk "$FILE" 
done
date > TIMEFILE

# 6  
Thanks reborg

I finally got the message.

The file path was being repeated.
