in reply to Re^6: Making a regex case insensitive
in thread Making a regex case insensitive

I have been given:

my $sql = "EXEC $SPROC ". join ', ', ('?') x $procs{$SPROC}; my $sth = $dbh->prepare($sql); $sth->execute(@CHOICE);

But I don't understand how to apply it. Did the person that gave me this mean:


No. I meant what I wrote. And I've tried twice to explain how it's used. But you seem determined not to understand :-)

Let's have one last try.

  1. Create an SQL statement containing placeholders (marked by question marks) where you later want to insert values.
  2. Compile that SQL using $dbh->prepare. This returns a statement handle ($sth).
  3. Execute the statement using $sth->execute passing it a list of values - one value for each placeholder in the SQL statement,

Does that help at all?

    The problem that I have with this method is that it produces the following error message. Does this mean that I have to change the SPROC to only receive strings or can I make changes at the Perl level?
    Syntax error converting the nvarchar value 'x' to a column of data typ +e int.
    Update: The placeholders show as follows:
    EXEC sprocname ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ? +, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?
    There was a string like the following: 'ICTABYXIDNUBXdMOCqgwbQRVJNZsfgVqOFrH' which does contain a X
