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.

script(1)						      General Commands Manual							 script(1)

NAME
script - Makes a transcript of terminal session SYNOPSIS
script [-a] [file] The script command makes a transcript of everything printed on your terminal. OPTIONS
Appends the transcript to file rather than writing it to file. OPERANDS
The name of an output file that will contain the transcript of the session. If this parameter is omitted, the file typescript is written. DESCRIPTION
The transcript is written to file, or appended to file if the -a option is given. If no file name is given, the transcript is saved in the file typescript. The script ends when the forked shell exits. This program is useful when you are using a CRT and want a hard-copy record of the dialog (for example, a technical writer might create an example of a working session this way). If you specify the -a option and the file does not exist, it is created. If you do not specify the -a option and the file exists, it is replaced. RESTRICTIONS
The script command requires a streams based terminal. In single user mode, streams may not be enabled. Under these circumstances, script will exit with no action. If you are the superuser and need to run this command in single user mode, use the following special instruc- tions. Enabling Streams If it is necessary to enable a streams environment in the single user mode, enter the command /sbin/init.d/streams. This command is avail- able to the superuser only. SEE ALSO
Commands: autopush(8), cat(1), echo(1), strsetup(8), tee(1) System Administration script(1)
