AWK - conditional cause

Hello guys,

I want to make a conditional cause in the following file using awk:
awk '{ if ($2 != 0) print $1, $2, $3}' test.csv > test2.csv

FILE EXAMPLE = test.csv


However i always get in test2.csv the same content of test.csv. Does anyone know what is the problem with my statment?

Best Regards
