AWK and search string

still can't get this command right.


I need to find a string that is always in the 6th or 7th column
this string must have all the words in it with one word that can be any word  (xxxx)

ex:

pop.xxxx.my.domain.com

I want to make it to search the 6th and 7th column but can only make is search one or the other

Ex  
awk '$6,  or  awk '7$

I've tried    $6-$7   $6, $7  and with brackets and everything else i can think of, i know it's a easy fix for this part but can't get it.

I'm useing

awk '$7 ~ /.*@pop\..*+.my.domain.com/ {print $6, $7;}'  

Thanks

Use "||" for "or" in the awk comparision syntax
e.g.
echo pop.xxxx.my.domain.com | awk -F"." '$2 ~ /xxxx/ || $3 ~ /xxxx/'

Hi bt707,

awk ' { print $6 " " $7 } ' input_file | grep "my_search_string"

Thanks sunnycoder,

Just what I need needed,

I ended up using  

awk ' /.*@pop\..*+.oilfield.slb.com/ {print $6, $7;}'  searchfile1

is there a advantage to using awk and then using grep to pull the string

Thanks Agian
