I need help writing a script that would extract from a master file the oldest records and save them in a separate file. The file contains hundreds of ISIN codes and additional data. For each, there are daily records. The perfect script would take out the whole oldest row and save it in a separate file named by that ISIN code. So I am guessing split and grep combinations?
Column A - ISIN code (i.e. XX1234567891) <- 2 letters and 10 numbers
Column C - Date - 08/04/2019
Column B & D-I - relevant data.
Any suggestions ? Please keep in mind that I am really at the beginning of my journey with bash.
Thank you in advance for any help
Below is the link to the example file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Q3qhrVlIMA7cJhDVxjxoHCipEl8sV-xo/view?usp=sharing
example with 3 different ISIN's:
One file with the oldest record:
Second file with the oldest record:
3rd one with the oldest records - both with same date:
Dates are in DD/MM/YYYY format (now that I look at it in Libre I can see that the date format changed to MM/DD/YYYY - but that I can adjust later).
