in reply to Re^6: global var
in thread global var

$userid_1 = $manageusers::LoggedON_user_id;

Is that really line 66 of the cgi ? to work it needs to be

$userid_1 = $manageusers::LoggedOn_user_id;
to match the name in manageusers.pm

Update : Try this simplest of test script alongside update_tables-development.cgi with your existing manageuser module.

1) Change the #!/usr/bin/perl line to whatever you use for your other cgi scripts. 2) Make sure the permissions are executable by the webserver. 3) Check the line endings are UNIX format (if that's what they need to be)

#!/usr/bin/perl # moduletest.cgi use strict; use CGI ':standard'; use CGI::Carp 'fatalsToBrowser'; use manageusers qw($LoggedOn_user_id); my $now = scalar localtime; print header,start_html; print qq(<b>$now</b><pre> \$manageusers::LoggedOn_user_id = $manageusers::LoggedOn_user_id \$LoggedOn_user_id = $LoggedOn_user_id </pre>); print end_html;
