Hi.. Thank you for replying
Well you pretty much right about the GUI part.
However, my problem is slightly different from the one u mentioned here.
I'm actually trying to choose multiple files using multiple dialog boxes( jus a part of the user interface) and then pass these filenames as arguments to the parser which then sequentially checks the cell values and compares it to a set threshold and gives out the results. I'm not able to parse multiple files simultaneously after passing the filenames as arguments
Thanks again

    Then you have problem with algorithm parsing files? Because opening multiple files is simple, you just use different file handles:
    open FH, "file1" or die $!; open FH2, "file2" or die $!; $readlinefromfile1 = <FH>; $readlinefromfile2 = <FH2>; $readfromfile1again = <FH; close FH2; close FH;
      Thanks again .. I figured it out .. It's working fine now.. Thank you everyone for taking the time out to chip in .
