in reply to Handling delimiters

Please use code tags, it makes your code so much easier to read.

Who is "it" as in "It passes"? Is the substitution happening in Perl or in the DB driver? The semicolon is a significant character in SQL.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NASB)

    Sorry, Let me make it bit clear. I use $sql=$comFieldsV.$fromV.$Where; $comFieldsV ..I select all the fields. $fromV - the table with data $Where - I pass the filters. one of the filter conditions is  if ($ftype) { $Where = $Where . "AND G.FEAT_TYPE = '$ftype' "; } When I use a value like..abc, I get the data. But when I use abc;234 it passes only abc

    Thanks, Pragov

      You did not make it even a little bit clear, because you did not answer the question posed. Who is "it"? I think it will help you solve this problem if you figure out where the string "abc;234" is losing its second half. Hint: add

      print $Where . "\n";

      immediately after you create the string.

      Better still, look into using placeholders; they simplify things like quoting a great deal. Here's a simple example:

      my $stmt = <<'GPO'; select id_num id from reference where first_name = ? and shoe_size = ? GPO my $name = 'Howard'; my $shoe = 9; my $results_ref = $dbhandle->selectrow_hashref($stmt, undef, $name, $s +hoe); print $results_ref->{id};

      first_name is a string field, shoe_size is numeric, but the syntax for me is the same.
