in thread DBI script gives HTTP 500 error

I finally went through the error logs (I swear they weren't where they were supposed to be, then next time I check - there they are!).

I tried to find a simple sample script to make sure my DBI connection works and then I would build on it from there. But alas, I could find nothing. So I took the simplest test script I could find and try to make it work. I'm almost there. It appears my last hurdle is finding out how to name a table in an Excel CSV file that was never given one. Here's where I'm at:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use DBI; use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); use CGI qw (:standard); print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:CSV:f_dir=/cgi-bin/Book1") or die "Can't + connect to Book1: $DBI::errstr"; $dbh->{'csv_tables'}->{'info'} = {'col_names' => ["timestamp", "e +mail", "name", "address", "city", "state", "zip"]}; my $sth = $dbh->prepare( q{SELECT email FROM info WHERE state = ? }) + or die "Can't prepare statement: $DBI::errstr"; my $rc = $sth->execute ('OH') or die "Can't execute statement: $DBI: +:errstr"; print "Query will return $sth->{NUM_OF_FIELDS} fields.\n\n"; print "Field names: @{ $sth->{NAME} }\n"; while (my @result = $sth->fetchrow_array()) { print "@result\n"; } # check for problems which may have terminated the fetch early die $sth->errstr if $sth->err; $dbh->disconnect;

It returns an error (ToBrowser) "Cannot open /cgi-bin/Book1/info: No such file or directory"

    You'll need to specify the entire path to the file. 'C:/blah/blah/cgi-bin/blah/blah' or whatever...
