We used this for a while at work, ie MS SQL Server with DBI & DBD::ODBC & openlink. I seem to remember that the money field is buggy in DBD::ODBC or maybe it was in the openlink driver.

My memory of the problem was that money fields needed to be strings when input to the DBI ie in '', sending them as numbers ie without '' or as placeholders didn't work. (Or possibly the other way round - it was a while ago now.) I remember that we could never get the money fields to be entered as placeholders though.

We solved this problem (and many others) by switching to MySQL ;-)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
