Hi Monks,
I want to display contents of my oracle table for users to edit it. There are more than 60 fields in the table. I have a saperate table which hold the column names. This is what I am doing-
#Select fieldnames from accfields table in @fields. my @fields = getMultiRows($sql,1,$dbh); ##A saperate perl routine to e +xtract data. my $fields = join(",",@fields); $sql = "SELECT $fields FROM tran WHERE account=?"; my $sth = $dbh->prepare($sql); if(!$sth){$err= "Error preparing query " . $sql . " : ". $dbh->errstr; +} if(!$sth->execute(177)){$err = "Error Executing query " . $sql . " : " +. $dbh->errstr;} my %rows = $sth->fetchrow_hashref; # Now i get the html template and want to populate html form fields wi +th data extracted. All form field names are same as table column na +me. foreach(@fields){ $template->param($_=>$rows{$_}); } return $template->output;
The form is displayed but fields do not show data extracted from database! Where am I making mistake? The html tag in form is -
<input type="text" name="fname" size="40" maxlength="60" value="<!-- T +MPL_VAR fname -->"><!-- TMPL_VAR err_fname -->

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
