I'm assuming that RaiseError is on. That causes DBI to "die" if any method results in an error. You use the eval block to trap the error and handle it however you wish. For example, I've found it useful to print out the sql statement if a prepare fails, or the argument list if an execute fails, etc.

The connect statement should look something like this:

$dbh = DBI->connect($dsn, $user, $password, {RaiseError => 1, });
