Pattern search

Hi All ,

Please let me know how to get the below scenario done .

Below is the file pattern which I have ...

Code:
      BEGIN DSSUBRECORD
         Name "a"
         Prompt "b"
         Default "c"
         ParamType "0"
         ParamLength "0"
         ParamScale "0"
      END DSSUBRECORD
      BEGIN DSSUBRECORD
         Name "d"
         Prompt "e"
         Default "f"
         ParamType "0"
         ParamLength "0"
         ParamScale "0"
      END DSSUBRECORD
      BEGIN DSSUBRECORD
         Name "g"
         Prompt "h"
         Default "i"
         ParamType "0"
         ParamLength "0"
         ParamScale "0"
      END DSSUBRECORD
      BEGIN DSSUBRECORD
         Name "j"
         Prompt "k"
         Default "l"
         ParamType "0"
         ParamLength "0"
         ParamScale "0"
      END DSSUBRECORD
      BEGIN DSSUBRECORD
         Name "m"
         Prompt "n"
         Default "p"
         ParamType "0"
         ParamLength "0"
         ParamScale "0"
      END DSSUBRECORD


I need to print the records starting from Name to ParamScale .Please note there are spaces in front of these lines .

Expected output:
Code:
         Name "a"
         Prompt "b"
         Default "c"
         ParamType "0"
         ParamLength "0"
         ParamScale "0"
         Name "d"
         Prompt "e"
         Default "f"
         ParamType "0"
         ParamLength "0"
         ParamScale "0"
         Name "g"
         Prompt "h"
         Default "i"
         ParamType "0"
         ParamLength "0"
         ParamScale "0"
         Name "j"
         Prompt "k"
         Default "l"
         ParamType "0"
         ParamLength "0"
         ParamScale "0"
         Name "m"
         Prompt "n"
         Default "p"
         ParamType "0"
         ParamLength "0"
         ParamScale "0"

Please help .....

Try:
Code:
grep -v DSSUBRECORD file

# 3  
Conversely:
Code:
 grep '"' file

:-)
# 4  
There are other contents also in the file . I had provided a part of the file ...
# 5  
Try:
Code:
awk '$1=="Name",$1=="ParamScale"' infile

# 6  
The above is not the full content of the file .. its a portion of the file ..
# 7  
Did you try #5 ? What did you get and what did you expect?
