( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

2300 rows is not huge - millions of rows is huge :-) The transformation should not be a problem in perl, e.g. by reading into an array of arrays with the DBI and then traverse it with reversed indices, printing out a series of "INSERT INTO table VALUES (),(),()..." statements into a sql file. Add a "drop table" statement and you can use this to repopulate your table from the file.

However, a table with 36 rows and 2300 columns seems very wrong and it might be better to take the opportunity to redesign the database. If you can describe the database it would be easier to give more specific help.

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.
