Yes I did and it works fine in the eval block but is invisible when passed to the sub

    Easy enough to prove it works:

    >perl -wMstrict -le "my $bl_id; my @bly_id; sub insert_budget_line { return 'foo'; } sub insert_budget_line_year { return @_[1,0]; } eval { $bl_id = insert_budget_line(); @bly_id = insert_budget_line_year(bl_id => $bl_id); }; print qq{@bly_id}; " foo bl_id

    How is your  insert_budget_line_year function defined?

    Can you post the relevant code of the sub you call?
