I have used cut -d " " -f4 to extract the 4th but need some help to extract the 7th field . cut -d " " -f7 can't be used because of the STIME(Apr 08).

Thanks for help

Why not...

extract the 7th and 8th fields if date is in two fields?
# 3  
ps output

Date can have both this format

If you don't require all of the fields in -ef output, then don't use -ef. Your ps can probably be told to only output the two fields sought. Refer to your man page.
