Use below script to convert the file into csv and then strip out your fields

while read rec
        txt=`echo $rec|grep [a-zA-Z]`
        if [ ! -z $txt ]
        echo $rec|tr ' ' '\n'|grep -v ^' '>/tmp/tmp_rec
        while read sub_rec
                        if [ -z $newrec ]
                        newrec=`echo $sub_rec,`
                        newrec=`echo $newrec,$sub_rec`
