in thread hash name as a variable?

My mistake - you didn't mis-spell anything.

Did you get any output besides the error? And which line is line 224?

    Hi, Line 224 is the while (($key,$value ........ & the script output the SOR message, the "Processing ISWTEST message & the EOR message if I remove the use strict. The while ($key.... is not actioned, I put a toytown display in their and it never appeared. If I leave the use strict in I get

    <***** SOR ACC_ORACLE_ENV *****>

    Processing ISWTEST Environment.
    Can't use string ("ISWTEST") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at line 224.

    It would seem that this is the piece of offending code but I still can't see why -
    while (($key,$value) = each %$DB_name) { print "\tKey :: $key\n" ; print "\tValue :: $value\n" ; }
    Cheers, Ronnie
