      I must be misunderstanding what you are trying to do.  I read it as
you have a few hundred records in your cat app that you wish to be able to
present to a user and have them submit them in such a way that a cgi post
happens to a non related cgi app (that controls another database).  Is this
correct?  If so,  I do not know why you would not just show the records
(not in html forms, but as an informational view) with an ability to select
records.  these selected records posted via a submit to your app, can cause
your app to validate (why are they not validated on import of the csv btw?)
and submit to the external app via LWP server side (not via some client
side javascript hack).
