in reply to Need help to correct a simple script

The SQL needs to be declared in the loop, as you're changing the variable $count each time. Consider the more idiomatic
foreach my $count (1..$tables) { my $sql =<<EOF; .... EOF die ("Failed to insert row: " . DBI->errstr) if (!($dbh->do ($sql) +)); }

Unfortunately you can't prepare and execute this statement with bound variables, as the table name is formed from one of the variables.

A Monk aims to give answers to those who have none, and to learn from those who know more.

[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I don't think any of my modules could be converted to OO. They are too procedural.
[Lady_Aleena]: Now I will see if my perl-fu is as bad as I think it is.
[shmem]: ah, geany uses its own idea of tags. Ah well...
[Lady_Aleena]: My perl-fu is bad.
