Check out this info: Beginner's Introduction to Perl -

I would add the closes from my last example and get into a habit of closing files when through with them, from perlintro -
When you're done with your filehandles, you should close() them (though to be honest, Perl will clean up after you if you forget)

Glad I could help!!Smilie

Just write headers right after opening output file and before writing detail lines, see below example:

open ( my $out_file_fh,  '>', $out_file   ) or die "Can't open $out_file $!\n";
# Create header line in output file before writing detail lines.
print "header1,header2,header3,etc.....\n";
