SQL::Statement confusing literals and identifiers
SQL::Statement doesn't seem to recognize that "set" means set.
String constants use single quote (') delimiters. Column labels use double quotes ("), and set in your example is a string constant, not a column label.
So the (non-) problem is that it doesn't like parsing illegal SQL. Rewrite your statement as the following, and you should be fine.
