in thread Can I match a range from an array?

OK.. you really should look at perlre. The regex /CI: x'(\w+)$/ looks for "CI: x'<one or more word characters><end of line>".
The parens around the \w+ capture that to the variable "$1". And that is going to be the code you're looking for. So in my example.. $1 == "503E". And for any line, it's going to equal whatever is between "x'" and the end of the line.

Hope that clairifies things. And also.. read all of perlre. All of this will be much clearer, and you're probably completely rewrite your script as a result of learning what you can do with regular expressions.

    That's it....THAT'S IT!!! WOOOHOOO!

    Praise rchiav for his great knowledge!

    It does exactly as I want it to now.
    With the hash, your "if statement" and some of my code
    it works! It now prints off the lines I tell it to based off the MSISDN\phone number from the appropriate/matching record block title and matches the correct "Cell ID" number\key from the hash and associates the key with it's value and prints the correct name.

    I understood the regex and I understand them and I knew what you wrote. I will look at "perlre". The thing is I can write em but some of the stuff I don't know how it works. For instance you put the $ at the end of your pattern match. I knew what every part of your regex meant except the "$". I think it means match at end of line (not sure though). Then I didn't know that $1 became the variable for the numbers. I thought it was referring to the "key" in the hash so it would print off the first value of the first key in the hash.
