The keys corresponding to 9-13 were repeated later in your $line, which resulted in an overwrite of the values corresponding to those keys.

For example, from the first set of print statements, position 9 corresponds to "POSITION NAME", which would look something like:

$dataPos{"POSITION NAME"} = 9;
A little further in your list you'll see "POSITION NAME" at position fifteen; the assignment statement for this would look something like
$dataPos{"POSITION NAME"} = 15;
Since this statement is executed after the first, your 9 disappears, and only 15 is stored as the value for the key of "POSITION NAME".

Repeat the above for entries 10-13, and you should see those values got overwritten.

If you want to keep all this data, you might consider making the integers your keys, and saving the text as the values. Of course, you already did that when you created the @data array.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
