I'd really like to know why you can't join the tables...

    The tables are too big, they are already a logic file from 3 different tables each. Thats the only way, I have to get the values from the first and after finding the account numbers I can get the rest from the other table, manipulate the results in the array ref and format a report
      Perhaps indexes on your tables could help. Or instead of trying to turn Perl into a database, create subsets of your tables in temp tables and query those.

      I know from personal experience that this type of processing is best left to databases even though Perl is much cooler than SQL
