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.

NAME
script -- make typescript of terminal session SYNOPSIS
script [-a] [-c COMMAND] [-f] [-q] [-t] [file] DESCRIPTION
Script makes a typescript of everything printed on your terminal. It is useful for students who need a hardcopy record of an interactive session as proof of an assignment, as the typescript file can be printed out later with lpr(1). If the argument file is given, script saves all dialogue in file. If no file name is given, the typescript is saved in the file typescript. Options: -a Append the output to file or typescript, retaining the prior contents. -c COMMAND Run the COMMAND rather than an interactive shell. This makes it easy for a script to capture the output of a program that behaves differently when its stdout is not a tty. -f Flush output after each write. This is nice for telecooperation: One person does `mkfifo foo; script -f foo' and another can super- vise real-time what is being done using `cat foo'. -q Be quiet. -t Output timing data to standard error. This data contains two fields, separated by a space. The first field indicates how much time elapsed since the previous output. The second field indicates how many characters were output this time. This information can be used to replay typescripts with realistic typing and output delays. The script ends when the forked shell exits (a control-D to exit the Bourne shell (sh(1)), and exit, logout or control-d (if ignoreeof is not set) for the C-shell, csh(1)). Certain interactive commands, such as vi(1), create garbage in the typescript file. Script works best with commands that do not manipulate the screen, the results are meant to emulate a hardcopy terminal. ENVIRONMENT
The following environment variable is utilized by script: SHELL If the variable SHELL exists, the shell forked by script will be that shell. If SHELL is not set, the Bourne shell is assumed. (Most shells set this variable automatically). SEE ALSO
csh(1) (for the history mechanism), scriptreplay(1). HISTORY
The script command appeared in 3.0BSD. BUGS
Script places everything in the log file, including linefeeds and backspaces. This is not what the naive user expects. AVAILABILITY
The script command is part of the util-linux-ng package and is available from ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/util-linux-ng/. Linux July 30, 2000 Linux
