@RudiC

I am new to this forum, Still finding my way around the rules for posting in this forum, Apologizes for the formatting errors i have done.

In reference to your Post-3

- how to select / reject the devices (e.g. 172.17.168.227 is missing in your desired output)?
All devices have to accepted my output may have omitted the device while formatting



- how to fill items not yet found when encountering the print trigger ("System Name:")?
If the item is not found it can be set as null

- why not use "System Description" as the print trigger?
By mistake i guess i pasted the version of the script which i was working on , Print trigger was actually should be "System Description"

- why <TAB> chars in your desired output, not the commas set as OFS in your script?
I copied from the output from excel and tried to format it to paste in the forum, The Formatting got messed up.

No need to apologize, and it's not about formatting / posting rules either, although adhering to them is highly welcomed. Help people help you by creating a decent, detailed, in depth specification that doesn't leave questions nor uncertainties open.

Please look back into all your posts in this thread so far. I admit there may be a language barrier (I'm not a native speaker, either), but: They're incomplete, unstructured, messed up (sic), and contain mistakes (sic). How should someone start decent analysis or programming based on what's given? Everything given so far is based on guesswork and doomed to fail on your real request.


EDIT:
BTW, if the input data is as unstructured as you attached it, it might be wiser to look for a different approach... Show the process you use from the beginning.

I tried to format the whole issue.

Below is the code i am currently using

Code:
#!/bin/bash

cd /cygdrive/c/output/LLDP
#cat *.txt > output_temp.txt

i=/cygdrive/c/output/LLDP/output.csv

echo "Hostname, IP, Capabilities, Dest_Host, Local_Port, Mgmt_IP, Remote Platform, Remote_Port, SysName, Version, Chasis_ID" >$i


awk '
                {sub ("\r+$", _)
                }
/spawn/         {sub (/^.*@/, _)
                 IP = $0
                 NENM = DESC = ""
                }               
/NE name:/      {NENM = $4
                }
/System Capabilities: / {sub (/^System Capabilities: /, _)
                 SYCP = $0
                }
/System Name: / {sub (/^System Name: /, _)
                 SYNM = $0
                }
/Local Intf: / {sub (/^Local Intf: /, _)
                 LCINF = $0
                }
/IP: / {sub (/^IP:  /, _)
                 MGIP = $2
                }
/Port id: / {sub (/^Port id: /, _)
                 RMPR = $0
                }
/Port Description: / {sub (/^Port Description: /, _)
                 PODES = $0
                }	
/VRP (R) software& Version  / {sub (/^/, _)
                 VER = $0
                }					
/Chassis id: / {sub (/^Chassis id: /, _)
                 CHID = $0
                }					
/System Desc/   {getline
                 sub ("\r+$", _)
                 print NENM, IP, SYCP , SYNM , LCINF, MGIP, $0, PODES, RMPR,VER, CHID 			 
                }		
' OFS=, /cygdrive/c/output/LLDP/output.txt >>$i

Input text file is attached.

As you can see in the output "Capabilities" and "Mgmt_IP" output is printed in the second row instead of the first.
