It's possible that $stt is empty in some of the concatenations. A couple of minor style issues might clear it up.

Otherwise, it depends a lot on what's coming back from the database. Without seeing that, it's hard to know what the trouble is. As a side note, I personally wouldn't use this for such a thing. It's very hard to control what variables are in scope and accessible when you pull information out of a database like this.

There's probably a better way. If you describe the situation in SoPW, you'll probably get two or three alternate ideas that aren't as fragile.

sub VWP_RunQuery { my ($QueryRef, @Params) = @_; if ($QueryRef) { VWP_Log(5, "Running query $QueryRef..."); my $stt = "select q.FromVal, q.OrderVal, q.SelectVal, q.WhereV +al " . "from VWPQuery q, VWPQueryRef qr where q.Query=qr.Query and " +. "qr.DBType = ? and qr.Query = ?"; my $Return = VWP_SQL($stt, ($Session::DBType, $QueryRef)); if (@$Return) { my $OrderVal = $Return->[0]->{OrderVal}; $stt = "select " . $Return->[0]->{SelectVal} . " from " . $Return->[0]->{FromVal}; if ($Return->[0]->{WhereVal}) { my $WhereVal = eval "qq/$Return->[0]->{WhereVal}/"; $stt .= " where " . $WhereVal; } if ($OrderVal) { $stt .= " order by" unless $OrderVal =~ /^order by/i; $stt .= " $OrderVal"; } return VWP_SQL($stt, @Params); } } VWP_StrMessage(1, 13, $QueryRef); }

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