I will safely bet (1) that you are calling the method against a database connection, and (2) that you don't need to.

    I'm not calling anything. I didn't write this program, I bought it a number of years ago. I am not well versed in perl. I had a guy who was helping me with things who I trusted but he disappeared. Have actually been running this for almost 20 years with bunch of bug fixes etc. But yet it runs successfully every day on-line. I haven't changed anything in the script for localhost other than the shebang and had to fix some paths. My problem is trust. Who can I trust to help me? I mean I ask a serious question about a problem I'm having and some obnoxious guy mocks me? That's real helpful! I know under normal circumstances you would send script. But then what script do I send? Why would a program work with mariadb and not workbench? I really think it has something to do with that, not script. Sorry for the tantrum, but this is a frustrating experience.
      "Sorry for the tantrum, but this is a frustrating experience."

      It's equally as frustrating for us. I mean you have been asked at least twice to show the relevant software code so that we can help you, but instead of doing that in order to get help, you go on a rant.

      Many of us here have been programming in Perl for decades, and have been on this site just as long helping Perl users with coding problems. Thing is, to resolve a coding problem, we kind of need to see code.

      Once again, please post the relevant code that's triggering the problem, and some of the surrounding context as well.

      "I really think it has something to do with..." ...there you go guessing again. Stop guessing at what you have no idea about. Show code so we can help you.
