Thanks for the excellent advice as I now have the correct information 
when I run the code. I am slowly working on a program where I ask a user 
for a selection, compare the selection to a file, then assign that 
selection(two pieces of information) to a variable to be used later.

In your opinion should this data file be YAML, csv, or something else? I 
am only looking at less than 100 records.

Thanks

Michael
