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 record of a terminal session SYNOPSIS
script [-a] [filename] DESCRIPTION
The script utility makes a record of everything printed on your screen. The record is written to filename. If no file name is given, the record is saved in the file typescript. See WARNINGS. The script command forks and creates a sub-shell, according to the value of $SHELL, and records the text from this session. The script ends when the forked shell exits or when Control-d is typed. OPTIONS
The following option is supported: -a Appends the session record to filename, rather than overwriting it. NOTES
script places everything that appears on the screen in filename, including prompts. ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Availability |SUNWcsu | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |CSI |Enabled | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
attributes(5) WARNINGS
script can pose a security risk when used in directories that are writable by other users (for example, /tmp), especially when run by a privileged user, that is, root. Be sure that typescript is not a link before running script. SunOS 5.11 30 Jan 2004 script(1)
