in reply to variable number of lists

Not to sound too off the beaten path, but if you were to use the module Config::Simple and its http syntax, an awful lot of the work will be done for you.

I'd also like to know where you're getting the "Day" field from. Is that a date the file was created? Is that a date embedded in the file the user creates? Expanding on that would help us all point to a solution.

    I thought to keep things simple and use a silly example. Seems to have had the opposite effect and made things complex.
    Leason learned.

    Anywhoo, the brain fart has cleared and using the hash keys and number of elements did the trick.
    Thanks for the help!
