comment Variable Substitution in Awk Print Statement -v
Good to know that it runs, now I'm confused why it doesn't run on my machine. Whatever - I'm just going to use the cut workaround suggested below. Thanks for your help!

The problem is I don't know what col it will be. The column number is a variable which is set earlier in the script.

I'm feeling really dumb right about now. Thanks! For knowledge sake, any idea what is wrong with the awk I wrote?

The field separator is a single space - the default for awk. I'll add sample input to the question. I've read the man page, just didn't remember the term FS. Thanks for taking a look at it for me.

If you're referring to my file privileges, I have confirmed earlier in the script that I have read and write privileges on all files I'm referencing.

I don't know what FS signifies in this context, so I'm going to go with no... I'm new to this.
