in reply to adding database values to csv file

Buttons are GUI specific, so unless you tell us what the GUI is you want it to be implemented in, it will be hard to get working examples. perl/Tk button code won't work in Wx and vise-versa.

A callback to dump a table to CSV could be something like (untested!)

# assuming the database handle in $dbh use Text::CSV_XS; sub save_table { my $tbl = shift; # it is up to you to check for SQL-injection on $tbl ... my $sth = $dbh->prepare ("select * from $tbl"); $sth->execute; my %rec; my @fld = @{$sth->{NAME_lc}}; $sth->bind_columns (\@rec{@fld}); my $csv = Text::CSV_XS->new ({ binary => 1, auto_diag => 1, eol => + "\n", always_quote => 1 }); $csv->print (*STDOUT, \@fld); # Print header, change STDOUT to fil +e if required while ($sth->fetch) { $csv->print (*STDOUT, [ @rec{@fld} ]); } } # save_table

    I am developing a GUI in perl/tk. Its mainly for report preparation purpose. So When I give the required inputs and Click on 'Generate Report' button I want the query fetched result to be put in a csv file. -Vidya Surendran
      $frame->Button ( -text => "Save table FOO", -borderwidth => 1, -highlightthickness => 0, -command => sub { save_table ("foo"); }, )->pack;

    I would like to tie on with my question:
    say you need to modify the values bevor printing where could be the best point to do this?
      while ($sth->fetch) { $rec{fobar} =~ s{old}{new}; # change in a single co +lumn s/(?:\b|[0-9])USD\b/EUR/g for values %rec; # change all columns $csv->print (*STDOUT, [ @rec{@fld} ]); }

      Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
        Many thanks!
