Maybe this extract from The Perl Cookbook will be of use for when you do the hash comparison... :-)

    Thanks guys.

    I think the problem is that my code is not establishing a single key, and is instead making each element of each record a key (ie: symbol is a key, seq# is a key, status is a key, etc.). Unless i'm misunderstanding something, it would be impossible to compare one element of HASH #1 to the similar element in HASH #2 with the way I have it coded thus far.

    Thanks
