( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

You didn't provide enough of your Perl source code to solve your problem. When I copied your code to my machine I instantly got errors regarding the %in hash so I replaced that with the ever-popular CGI module:

use CGI qw|:standard|; #my $firstname = $in{name}; + my $firstname = CGI::param('name');

Now to get it to compile cleanly you have other problems:

use strict; #<- get into the habit of using this #... my ($lastname, $date_first_employed, $annual_salary, $id , $email_address, $home_phone_number, $emergency_phone_number); while (($lastname, $date_first_employed, $annual_salary, $id, $email_address, $home_phone_number, $emergency_phone_number) = $sth->f +ethrow_array()) #...

You are using $date_first_employed multiple times in while statement (I changed it) and although you were using $id in your print statement on line 61 you had not defined or set it to anything. Strict would have complained about these things.

Wow, my SQL skills must be getting rusty when I see your query -- from where I'm sitting that isn't ever going to work:

"SELECT lastname, date_first_employed, annual_salary FROM employees WH +ERE firstname = $qfirstname, SELECT * FROM employee_contacts WHERE contact_id = $qcontactid")

These are two totally separate SQL statements comma separated. Is there database engine that allows that? If so please let me know.

Title:
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.
