in thread Perl DBI: problems inserting data to a table

Try using just what I wrote before:

print $sth->errstr unless $sth->execute(@arguments) > 0;

What you posted above doesn't capture the actual return value of the 'execute' call. You might need to say "$dbh->errstr" instead of "$sth->errstr".

It helps to remember that the primary goal is to drain the swamp even when you are hip-deep in alligators.

    I tried initially your string with the same result...

      It was my thought that maybe the data in one of the columns exceeded the DB field width, but if that is the case, you are not getting an error message that would show it. At this point I would start losing some hair.

        Thanks once more! As I pointed already in the update of my question it seems problem was with the Storable driver itself. When I changed it to SQLite everything starts working fine.

        Although, I still don't get why it was not working without throwing any kind of exceptions or warnings...
