Please Brethren HELP
I am very new to SQL and ODBC (so please do help me). I have written the following simple code, which inserts an entry (record) into an access database. In order to establish and maintain referential integrity, I need to know the Index key value of this entry to tie it up with its sub records.
use warnings 'all';
my $dsn = "test";
my $srv_tbl = "server_tbl";
my $drv_tbl = "drives_tbl";
my $srv = shift @ARGV;
my $loc = shift @ARGV;
my $notes = pop @ARGV;
my $db = new Win32::ODBC( $dsn ) || die "\nError! $^E:$!\n";
$db->Sql("INSERT INTO $srv_tbl (srv_name, location, notes) VALUES ('$s
my $sql= “select srv_id from server_tbl where srv_name='$srv'”; #this
+bit doesn’t work
print "Index Key: $sql\n"
This bit doen't work (my $sql= “select srv_id from server_tbl where srv_name='$srv'”);
Can someone please get me out of my misery, and inform me why.
