my ($xsql) = new Win32::ODBC('VER2004R2'); $xsql->Sql($sql); $xsql->FetchRow(); my (%ahash) = $xsql->DataHash(); if (($ahash{Status} eq 'Solved') && ($ahash{'Assigned_to'} ne '') && ($ahash{'Resolved_by'} ne '') && ($ahash{'Verified_by'} ne '') ) { $sql = 'INSERT INTO tblBasicProblems_history ( PGNFIL +ENAME, '; $sql .= ' [Date], Description, Author, Status, Assign +ed_to, Resolution, '; ... $xsql->Sql($sql); ...
