I swear on my mother's grave (well she's not dead yet, but you get the picture) that I have been using this code for years without a problem. Did something change in DBI?

    This has nothing to do with DBI. You were using a variable you didn't declare ($DBI), and you asked to make such things errors by using (use strict;).

    While $DBI::errstr is also a variable you didn't declare, use strict; forgives qualified ("::") package variables.

    Although it's not documented, DBI->errstr might work. Maybe that's what you were using.

      You missed the update where he says he figured it out
        Thanks, but I didn't. I thought the post to which I replied was a followup question.
