An RDBMS would be simple and easier to manage I agree. The issue is that the data is in the form of .csv.

    You might find DBD::CSV handy, then.

    So use, DBD::CSV which will allow you to use DBI and SQL on your files and treat them like an RDBMS.

    So what? Load it into a database. I'm going to assume that this is data that will not change, as you mention it's sales data. So, you're probably going to want this in a database anyways.

    Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
    Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
    Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
    Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

    You mean, there's still a database out there that isn't able to import from the CSV file? Quick! Call the Smithsonian!
