create a shell script that calls another script and and an awk script

Hi guys

I have a shell script that executes sql statemets and sends the output to a file.the script takes in parameters executes sql and sends the result to an output file.

#!/bin/sh
echo " $2 $3 $4 $5 $6 $7
isql -w400 -U$2 -S$5 -P$3 << xxx
use $4
go
print"**Changes to the table ************"
select *
from cashflow
where label = 'DEALS'
go
xxx
i also have an AWK script that takes the output produced by the script above and generates a csv file from it and sends the output to another file as CSV.
BEGIN {
count=0;
}

/^[^(]/ {
count+=1
if ( count >1 ){
for (i=1; i <= NF; i = i + 1)
printf("%s,",$i);
printf("\n");
}
}

My problem is.
1.how do i call the first script from another shell script passing in the required parameters.
2.how ho i call the AWK script after the output from above to process the file and produce a csv file.this has to be in the same script as the above.
3.my main problem is how to do the above from ONE shell script.
4.some of date being prcessed by the AWK script is in datetime format.the AWK script is seperating the day,month and year with comma.How do i make it treat 23-06-2008 as single field and not as seperate fields.

Thanks.

uudemon(4)						     Kernel Interfaces Manual							uudemon(4)

NAME
uudemon.admin, uudemon.cleanu, uudemon.hour, uudemon.poll - Administrative shell scripts for polling remote systems, cleaning up spool directories, reporting status to the system administrator, and routine invocations of the uuxqt and uusched daemons SYNOPSIS
These shell scripts reside in the following directory: /usr/lib/uucp DESCRIPTION
All the scripts can be run from the command line or can be run automatically by the cron daemon. To automatically run the scripts, remove the comment character (#) from the beginning of the relevant line in the /var/spool/cron/crontabs/uucp file. This script reports status to the system administrator. It issues the uustat command to find out the status of uucp jobs. It mails the results to the uucp login ID. The script may be modified to send mail to any login ID such as the uucp administrative login ID (uucpa) or root. This script cleans up the /var/spool/uucp and /var/spool/uucppublic directories by running the uucleanup command. The uucleanup com- mand is run with the following parameters: -C7, -D7, X2, -o2, -W1. This script runs the uusched and uuxqt daemons in the background. This script polls the systems listed in the /usr/lib/uucp/Poll file. The uudemon.poll script should be scheduled before the uudemon.hour script. This allows uudemon.poll to create any command files before cron runs the uudemon.hour script. FILES
Contains the uudemon.admin, uudemon.cleanu, uudemon.hour and uudemon.poll files. Contains the uucp file. RELATED INFORMATION
Commands: cron(8), uucleanup(8), uusched(8), uuxqt(1) Files: /usr/lib/uucp delim off uudemon(4)
