Replace the 3 in my example with a 6, you should consider learning basic SQL.

    What I meant is something like this my ($ansb_cktid, $ansb_mcn, $ansb_soc) =unpack("A3 A3 A6")

      I'm of the mind set that you shouldn't pull back more data than you need then post process it, when you can easily return only what you need.
