in thread Fast seeking in a large array of hashes to generate a report.
As stated before, the problem i get when i use sql, is that i create a monsterous sql with inner, outer left and rigt joins, if -statemetns( not fast) and 100'ds of where statements.
The database is big, and the structure complex, the problem as described here, is only a simple representation of the real situation.
