Try
Code:
awk '
#NR == 1          ||
$3-ST>2999      {FN = "file" ++FCNT
                 ST = $2
                }
                {print  >  FN
                }
 ' file


This assumes the values in $3 start at values higher than 2999; if not so, remove the # before the NR == 1 line

/^\S+\s+20498/,/^(\S+\s+){2}21668\s/ {print > "file3"}
' file


Thank you so much. This is what I need.

Sorry about my delay in gettng back think timezone differences are involved here. looks like we have some nice solutions coming together in this thread now.

This is the pseudo code I had in mind when I first read your requirements:
Code:
set startnum=0
set fileext = 1
loop:
    read line from input
    if column#3 - startnum > 2999 then
        startnum = column#2
        fileext = fileext + 1
    endif
    append line to filename("file" + fileext)
end loop

And the awk coded solution:
Code:
awk '
BEGIN { start=0 ; filenum=1 }
!start { start=$2 }
($3 - start) > 2999 {
   close("file" filenum)
   filenum++
   start=$2
}
{ print > "file" filenum }' infile

This is very similar to RudiC's proposal. The main difference being in the close statement. awk has a limited number of output buffers and using close will become necessary when dealing with a larger input files which can generate too many output files.

And in the spirit of this site this reduced solution could be derived from above:

Code:
awk '
!start || ($3 - start) > 2999 {
   close("file" filenum++)
   start=$2
}
{ print > "file" filenum }' infile
