Do you know where your variables are?

I haven't coded in the DBI for a while now. Nonetheless, I would try binding parameters using $sth->bind_param(). For instance, given that $dbh is a valid database handler:
$sth->prepare("UPDATE table SET column_1 = ? WHERE id = 1"); $sth->bind_param(1, 221783, { TYPE => SQL_VARCHAR }); $sth->execute();
According to Programming the Perl DBI, DBD::ODBC supports placeholders, so hopefully this will work.

This does not mean that the module supports money columns--you'll have to try the type_info() and type_info_all() methods, as in:

print $dbh->type_info_all();
This will (hopefully) return all the datatypes supported by Microsoft SQL Server and DBD::ODBC. I can't really answer for sure, as I do not use SQL Server or ODBC.

Hope this helps.

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.
