in thread Convert CSV export from Outlook - MySQL

You're quite right... that's to say, I'm not using DBD::CSV because I want all its features, only because I know how to use it. As an enthusiast for power tools, the idea of using a jackhammer to drive a nail appeals... sure does drive that nail. But you're quite right, if I were optimising for anything but my own time, I'd want something without the overhead - and you're quite right to point that out here for benefit of posterity. /me takes his lumps :)

    I used your script but whenever I run the perl script it inserts a blank row in mysql. Can anyone tell me why it happens and it the command line I get also this error. DBD::CSV::st execute failed: Missing first row at /usr/local/share/perl/5.6.1/DBD/CSV.pm line 171. Missing first row at /usr/local/share/perl/5.6.1/DBD/CSV.pm line 171.
