I have a question: if the field $2, $3.....$n can be short for , while I'd like to print the from $2 to $n (n is a very large number,so I cannot write them all one by one)

Use a for loop:

awk '{ for (i=1;i<5;i++) { field = field $i } } { print field }'

In addition to Peter's for loop comment, the n in your question is called NF in awk.
