Hi, I'm a little rusty with awk scripting...here's what I'm trying to do...given this data file...

A93779
   FullName,Smith, Alex
   AccountType,User

...I would like a script that creates a separate file for each account number (the account number would be the file name) which would contain the corresponding data FullName etc.
