Hi,

I have a file & it has date fields in 2 different places (say 1st date filed in 10th Position & 2nd date field in 20th position).
Now i need to compare the dates and write into another file if 10th position date is greater than 20th position date. Can you please help me out??

e.g

Code:
----+----1----+----2----+----3---
         20150102  20150101
         20150102  20150102   <===
         20150103  20150102     
         20150201  20150102     


Now my output file should have only



Code:
----+----1----+----2----+----3---
         20150102  20150101     
         20150103  20150102     
         20150201  20150102     


Thanks,
Anand

please use the code tags to present code, data, screenshots and anything else requiring retention of spaces. Did you not notice that your data display did not match your words?

Coded for you this time - but maybe not next time.

With code tags:
Code:
----+----1----+----2----+----3---
         20150102  20150101
         20150102  20150102   <===
         20150103  20150102     
         20150201  20150102     


Without code tags:
----+----1----+----2----+----3---
20150102 20150101
20150102 20150102 <===
20150103 20150102
20150201 20150102

You mean you did not check your post after submitting it? Bad, very bad - not just in a forum but in your work in general.
