I doubt it will solve your problem, but I think you're getting bitten earlier on by a logic flaw. When you construct $sth, $user_info{UserId} is immediately interpolated. And that means that UserId will always be whatever it is at that point, and not the appropriate individual value from %user_info. You should be using a placeholder for $user_info{UserId}, too. The quoting issue seems odd, since the driver should automatically quote the placeheld value correctly (and it appears to be, by the query returned). Perhaps you could try interpolating them yourself with $dbh->quote, or supply us with the actual values of the variables in question if that doesn't work.


I played around with mysql a bit, and it appears that it doesn't like it when you quote the column name in the SET part of an UPDATE. Quoting fields works in WHEREs and maybe other places, so this may be a bug (I don't see it documented anywhere). Since placeholders automatically quote their values, I suppose you can't use placeholders here. Which will leave you with a performance hit, sadly, as you'll need to reinterpolate a new statement handle each time. But beware! If %keys comes from an untrusted source, you'll need to very carefully taint-check the fields. The following code should at least function.

foreach $key(keys %user_info) { next if $key eq "UserId"; $sth = $dbh->prepare(" Update tUser Set $key = ? Where UserId = ? "); $sth->execute($user_info{$key}, $user_info{'UserId'}); } $sth->finish();

  • 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).
