I know how to extract a field to a log file using:
% grep something filename | awk '{print $3}' > output.log

filename:
06/07, something TEST1 TEST2 blah blah TEST4

Is there a way to output 2 or more fields to a file in columns.

Output.log with $3 $4 $7:

TEST1 TEST2 TEST4

Thanx

Do you mean;

grep something filename | awk '{print $3" "$4" "$7}' > output.log

or formatted output for variable length fields?
