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

Well, you havent told me what the problem is, but I'll try to help with what I can.

sub add_customer{ my ($company,$fname,$lname,$phn,$b2stre,$b2city,$b2stat,$b2zip,$s2st +re,$s2city,$s2stat,$s2zip) = @_; my ($handl) = DBI->connect('DBI:mysql:advanc'); or die "Couldn't con +nect to database: " . DBI->errstr; my $sql = "INSERT INTO customers (Company,FirstName,LastName,PhoneNumber,Bill2Street,Bill2City,Bill2S +tate,Bill2Zip,Ship2Street,Ship2City,Ship2State,Ship2Zip) VALUES (?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?) "; my $sth = $handl->prepare($sql) or die "Couldn't prep statement"; $sth->execute($company,$fname,$lname,$phn,$b2stre,$b2city,$b2stat,$b +2zip,$s2stre,$s2city,$s2stat,$s2zip) or die "Couldn't add customer"; }


  • named the insert field names. Dont know if this matters to mysql, but Informix is picky that way
  • added "or die" to $sth to catch those before the execute()
  • shortened the varnames. not a nit, im just a lazy typist

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 editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
