in reply to Method "do" error

Your code declares two lexical variables called $dbh, and each refers to a different variable. The second one masks the first - It's a brand new variable and it is undefined.

In the sub, try my $dbh = shift; in place of my $dbh;.

    I tried your suggestion with my $dbh = shift; and I'm still having no luck.
      Where did you put the my $dbh = shift in the sub store_items or the main body of the code??

      it needs to be in the sub

      sub store_items { my $dbh = shift; ....

      If this is the case then follow my previous suggestion and use Data::Dumper to print out the database handle right before your error and see what you get.

      sub store_items { my $dbh = shift; use Data::Dumper; print Dumper $dbh; ...

      Mynd you, mønk bites Kan be pretti nasti...
