Your SQL looks fine (although I think the words SELECT, FROM, and WHERE should be capitalized). The problem is that you need to execute the SQL statement, then assign the returned information to a data structure.

The code below will push the data that gets returned into a hash for each row, which you can then use to get a number. In this case, it looks like you would only have one row returned but the code below allows for multiple instances of the value.

my @rows; die qq(SQL failed: ), $db->Error(), qq(\n) if ($db->Sql("SELECT srv_id + FROM server_tbl WHERE srv_name='$srv'")); while ($db->FetchRow()) { my %data = $db->DataHash(); print qq(Index key is $data{"srv_id"}\n); #srv_id value # If you want to store information from multiple rows push @rows, {%data}; }

You should also check to make sure that your first SQL statement happened correctly. Check out Web Deployment Schemes for some examples on how to work with Win32::ODBC.

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.
