You'll want Rute or some other generic "basic commands" tutorial to read: 'grep name_of_infile '(REP_SHOKEEROR12_ORAAPPR2. =)' >> name_of_outfile'.

I think you can also use SED to grab a line and write it to a file. You need to be clear whether you want to append the line to the file (as in the example above) or to replace the contents of the file with the new line.
Excellent SED tutorial here:
