awk script

I am trying to get awk to search a file called $filetoDownload

check for matching files and place them in palocal_check/dirs.txt

it will them cut out the first 10 fields and place them in


The code as it looks now is as follows:#get the factset file
filetoDownload=`echo $acct | awk -F',' '{print $1}'`

#get the xls file to download
XlsfiletoDownload=`echo $acct | awk -F',' '{print $1}'`

filetoDownload=`echo $acct | awk -F',' '{print $2}'`
filetoDownload=`echo $filetoDownload | awk -F'_' '{print $1"_"$2"_"$3"_"$4}'`

printLog "searching for ${filetoDownload}"
##awk -F, '/'$filetoDownload'/ {print $2}' $palocal_check/dirs.txt > $palocal_check/dirsfound.txt

##cut -d "/" -f2-10 $palocal_check/dirs.txt > $palocal_check/dirsfound.txt

awk -F, '/'$filetoDownload'/ {print $1"/"$2"/"$3"/"$4"/"$5}' $palocal_check/dirs.txt > $palocal_check/dirsfound.txt

cat $palocal_check/dirsfound.txt

DirectoryFound=`cat $palocal_check/dirsfound.txt`

#did we get a match
# 2  

I would like to search a file called $filetodownload , print the first

five fields after the "/" , compare this file to another file called

$palocal_check/dirsfound.txt and redirect the output of the

common files to $palocal_check/dirsfound.txt

Is there any way of doing this in AWK ? or if not any other way

Posting the same question twice isn't going to get you a speedier response!
