in reply to Tk and scrollbars

Did you want the single quotes around '-wrap' and '-width' ?

Also, your "very long line" had line breaks in my downloaded version. Here are my modest hacks to activate the horizontal scroll bar:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use Tk; my ($mainwindow, $menubar, $display, $text); my $counter = 0; $mainwindow = new MainWindow; $mainwindow->geometry("800x400"); $display = $mainwindow->Scrolled('Text', -relief=>'sunken', -borderwidth=>'2', -height=>'24', -scrollbars=>'se', '-width' => 40, -wrap=>'none'); $display->pack(-expand=>'1', -fill=>'both'); $text = $display->Subwidget('text', -scrollbars=>'se', -wrap=>'none') +; # need this because you can't tie to $display - main widg +et tie *STDOUT, ref $text, $text; create_gui_main(); $text->repeat( 1000, sub { goto \&mymain; }, ); MainLoop; sub mymain() { # This would normally be real text $counter++; print "this is a very long line we need a scrollbar on the x axis... +..... this is a very long line we need a scrollbar on the x axis..... +... this is a very long line we need a scrollbar on the x axis....... +. well the number is current = " . $counter . " \n"; } # ------------------------ # sub quitapp() { exit; } # ------------------------ # sub create_gui_main { my $menuitems = [ [Cascade => "~File", -menuitems => [ [Button => "~Quit", -command => \&quitapp], ] ], ]; if ($Tk::VERSION >= 800) { $menubar = $mainwindow->Menu(-menuitems => $menuitems); $mainwindow->configure(-menu => $menubar); } else { $mainwindow->Menubutton(-text => "Pseudo menubar", -menuitems => $menuitems)->pack; } } __END__

The first dog barks... all other dogs bark at the first dog.

[Corion]: I usually expect fixed header names, but am sometimes lenient in the order of columns. But changing the report titles often sounds to me as if you are not the sole consument of the export ;)
[shmem]: perldigious: as always - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Ther must be a very compelling reason for changing column names in a database. Those are rare.
[Corion]: If you have whitespace in the column names in the database, whap the DBAs ;)
[shmem]: It's common for some vendors to have column names such as WRSTVG or some other such whizzbang, and another table where these names are mapped to something meaningful depending on how you look at the data
[shmem]: afair in SAP that occurs all the time
