quick scripting question - finding occurrence in many lines

I've been trying to do this with 'awk' but am hitting probs (not used
awk for ages!) so all offers welcome! 

Given a multiple line file, IN, that contains the word Processor
(possibly split over 2 lines) I wish to output the field immediately
preceeding Processor.

eg for

junk info 18 Pro

I wish to get the field '18'

Cheers, Michael
