in reply to mysql DBI Nested Queries

A simplified iterative approach, provided in pseudocode. Assumes supervisor is empty or null when hits CEO level. (Adjust while condition if not a good assumption.)

my $supervisor = $initial_employee_id; while ($supervisor) ( $row = select columns where eid = $supervisor; print out spreadsheet row for employee; $supervisor = $row{supervisor}; }

Also, since the database only returns a single row, you should be able to use the selectrow_arrayref function to make your sql code a bit simpler. And as for your "how to use variable inside sql string" question, see 7548
