...$value = "< a href=\"\">7231-R</a>"; ...

...displaying $value in the other column of the table. Here, i should also be getting a 7231-R with hyperlink if the if condition is true, but i'm only getting the text 7231-R without the hyperlink. What could be the problem?

Either your browser does not like the blank in
< a
or you are overwriting $value elsewhere between calculation and presentation/printing,
my guess.


if($astatus eq "PASS" && $kstatus eq "PASS"){

Unrelated, but otherwise relevant...
you can say "AND" as && (strong precedence) and as and (weak precedence).

Your line will probably do what you meant to do when you use parentheses to remedy &&'s strong precedence as

if( ($astatus eq "PASS") && ($kstatus eq "PASS") ){

or even better with the operator and as

if( $astatus eq "PASS" and $kstatus eq "PASS" ){
