in reply to DBD::ANYDATA create table

I agree with the posting about the table naming convention (these are in the DB, not on the OS). I think your approach will work if you change $ladder_table_fields so that it has the datatypes (not just the field names), i.e. my $ladder_table_fields = "player_name varchar2(30), id varchar2(9), position varchar2(30), ..."; # this would work in Oracle Also, change $sth->execute( $@sql_parameters ); to $sth->execute( $ladder_table, $ladder_table_fields[0], $ladder_table_fields1, ... I tested something like you had where you wanted to pass in the field names as a list (array), but I couldn't get $sth->execute to see it in a list context. Passing it as individual scalars worked. Of course you give up the reusability of $sql_command, but making it reusable might be more trouble than it's worth. Hope this helps, jeremyh

    Sorry for the formatting, I'll try posting as code (should have read further!) I think your approach will work if you change $ladder_table_fields so that it has the datatypes (not just the field names), i.e.  my $ladder_table_fields = "player_name varchar2(30), id varchar2(9), position varchar2(30)"; # etc., this would work in Oracle Also, change $sth->execute( $@sql_parameters ); to  $sth->execute( $ladder_table, $ladder_table_fields[0], $ladder_table_fields[1] # etc. I tested something like you had where you wanted to pass in the field names as a list (array), but I couldn't get $sth->execute to see it in a list context. Passing it as individual scalars worked.
      $sth->execute( $ladder_table, $ladder_table_fields[0], $ladder_table_fields[1],...

      You probably meant this instead... :-)
      $sth->execute( $ladder_table, @ladder_table_fields );

        Actually I couldn't get

        $sth->execute( $ladder_table, @ladder_table_fields );

        to work.

        I didn't think of join, like in your example.

        Does it (the array as a list) work on your installation?
