in reply to foreach problem?

my @words = split(/\s+/, $_[0]); # <-- Better to split on any whi +tespace my $newquery = qq[SELECT "taskID" from "repair" WHERE ("repairKEYWOR +D1" = '')]; foreach my $currentword (@words) { # <-- Current word goes outsid +e brackets $currentword =~ /^([\w]+)$/; $newquery .= qq[ or ("repairKEYWORD1" = '$currentword')]; $newquery .= qq[ or ("repairKEYWORD2" = '$currentword')]; $newquery .= qq[ or ("repairKEYWORD3" = '$currentword')]; }
Note use of qq rather than quoted strings

Does it work any better?

Update Splits better on /s than /S... but you saw that

    Thanks - just tried that but I still get the same output.

    I've checked that the data I'm sending gets to $_[0] but the output is the same.

    Anybody else?

    Thanks again

    Alex
