The "" occur because you put them there: print FH "\"$sdrposttax\","; Inside double-quotes, \" means to place a quote inside the string. So "" simply means that $sdrposttax is an empty string (or undef), so you get adjacent quotes.

Also, you should wrap your code and/or data in code tags <c>your code goes here</c> to make it easier to read. Otherwise, many people will simply ignore your post, as it can be annoying to have to decipher your post in order to give you help. Remember: When you're asking for help, it's in your own best interest to make it easy and convenient for us to help you. Offer us more information rather than less. Format it nicely.


When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.
