Wow... that's awesome! Thank you VERY much!

Worked great on my Windows test box using ActivePerl... but I get compile errors on the 'Nix server that I need to run it on (am only a tenant, not an admin etc. so no option of upgrading)... so I strongly suspect I'm coming across Perl versioning issues. Version on the server is "This is perl, v5.8.8 built for sun4-solaris" - which I suspect isn't compatible with something you've used in this script?

Bareword found where operator expected at real_test.pl line 44, near " +/= do { /Order" (Missing operator before Order?) Use of /c modifier is meaningless without /g at real_test.pl line 45. Bareword found where operator expected at real_test.pl line 45, near " +/= do { /cycle" (Missing operator before ycle?) Bareword found where operator expected at real_test.pl line 46, near " +/= do { /Vendor" (Missing operator before Vendor?) syntax error at real_test.pl line 44, near "/= do { /Order ID" syntax error at real_test.pl line 45, near "/= do { /cycle" syntax error at real_test.pl line 46, near "/= do { /Vendor ID" Unmatched right curly bracket at real_test.pl line 46, at end of line syntax error at real_test.pl line 46, near "$1 }" real_test.pl had compilation errors.

Note - this compiles and runs without issue on ActivePERL on my PC, as I'm sure it did on yours///

Any suggestions on reading I should do to work out how best to fit this into the version of Perl on the server?

Sorry to be a pain... you're being extremely helpful, and I'm being nothing but more problems lol
