in thread MySQL/Perl LIKE $string question

It's probably from how the placeholders are looked for in the query string. Since you're using MySQL, which IIRC doesn't have support for placeholders, that support is faked by the DBI level. Thus, it parses your string but doesn't look inside quoted blocks. So the placeholder in your "%?%" string isn't seen, and thus the DBI engine believes you have no placeholders, and fails on the execute.
