The first thing that comes pops out is that fact that you seem to be disconnecting from the database before you run the last command.(i.e.
$dbh->disconnect ||die " Failed to disconnect\n"; $dbh->do( $sql ) || die "Couldn't insert record. $!\n";

The second thing is that in the INSERT statement you are putting single quotes around $CLIENT, $RECORD, etc, which is fine but I would assume that you need to put these single quotes around the same things in the UPDATE statement and the SELECT statement if they are not numerical.

The last thing is that you should probably have a WHERE clause in your UPDATE statement so that you don't change all the records.

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