when i put in the command it came out like this
66666  Gustavson        Ian     25      M       250000
88888 Anderson  Jane  38       F       450000
Is there any way I can add space to line the chart up.  
awk '{ if ($3~/Jane/) {print $1"\t"$2"\t"$4"\t"$5"\t"$6"\t450000" }else {print $0}}' <file>

if input isn't tab-separated, try this one:
awk '{ if ($3~/Jane/) {print $1"\t"$2"\t"$4"\t"$5"\t"$6"\t450000" }else {print $1"\t"$2"\t"$3"\t"$4"\t"$5"\t"$6}}' <file>

another variant:
awk '($4=="Jane"){$4=$5;$5=$6;$6="450000";}{printf("%-6s%-16s%-8s%-8s%-8s%s\n",$1,$2,$3,$4,$5,$6);}' chart
Perhaps one of you has an idea (according to the given awk-suggestions, I guess not...;) ):
I was just wondering, whether awk provides a kind of "shift-operator" for the postional params/matches....

unfortunately no, at least I don't know of any
sometimes your simply can set a positional parameter "empty, like $3=""; but that is gawk/nawk only
otherwise you have to loop
