What are you using to query the database and build the recordset? DBI or Win32::ODBC or something else?

It's hard to help without any real information and debugging by telepathy gives me a headache.

You should be able to get the recordset into an array.
To take an example, assuming you are using DBI to connect to Oracle:

use DBI;

my $dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:Oracle:hostname", "username/password", "",);

my $results = $dbh->selectall_arrayref(qq{SELECT blah, blah FROM somewhere... });

Now $results is an array reference to the list of rows.
So you could traverse the list, back and forth, as many times as you want !!
