in reply to What is the better way to store and display data.

Hej Anonymous Monk, I agree 100% with aaron_baugher. If it is only 50 of those then there is no reason to use anything else then text files. And it's really not a problem if you have a file formated like this
Mary,Anna,Left,40 X,Central Location,454,456,MD at 01 floor John,Doe,Right,88 Y,Right Location,555,321,SI at 33 floor Kalle,Anka,Middle,77 Z,Left Location,777,212,AT at 22 floor
to get a printout like you described.

I'm pretty sure that you can find a lot of examples on the web.

If you are absolute perl beginner, try reading Robert's perl tutorial, otherwise, well you know. Happy Perl-ing

    Thank you all for the help, going to build based on the DBI:CSV code above, I like the flexibility on renaming columns. Thas right, its just around 50 records, a text based system should be just fine.
