in reply to Need help with hashes please!!!

In your line:

foreach $sedolelement (keys $tradedatehash{$tradedatemarker}) {
the element $tradedatehash{$tradedatemarker} is going to be a hash reference, not a hash directly. This is because perl stores complex structures as references as opposed to direct storage (see perlref for more details). To convert this hashref to a hash variable that keys can use, you can 'dereference' it by surrounding the variable with %{ }, as in:
foreach $sedolelement ( keys %{ $tradedatehash{ $tradedatemarker } } ) + { ... }
(Similarly, array references are deref'ed with @{ }, if you need this)

It's not what you know, but knowing how to find it if you don't know that's important
