Although I'm shooting in the dark here (it would help to know the version of DBIx::Dump that you have, and the values of the CGI parameters), it looks like your variable


Is probably not one of the recognized formats that DBIx::Dump will print in. Perhaps you can hard-code it to 'excel' or 'csv' and see if that solves the problem.

P00py, looks like mreece beat me to this one. =) Well, it wouldn't hurt if the author of DBIx::Dump did some validation on their input. The 'problem line' 149 in is:
So it's just attempting to exec a function associated with the 'format' query you provide, but it doesn't check to see if it's a valid function first. The CPAN docs don't say what functions are valid, but on lines 137-141 of you can see:
my %formats = ( 'excel' => $excel, 'csv' => $csv, 'iQuery' => $iQuery );
Which shows you the valid strings it will take as formats.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

  • 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.
