Assuming your update statement is correct, given your database structure and Oracle (I'm more familiar with mySQL):
use DBI; use strict; my $user = 'user'; my $pass = 'pass'; my $db = 'database'; my $filename = 'filename.txt'; my $query = qq* update ( select t1.field1, 999 deact_status from schema.table1 t1 inner join schema.table2 t2 on = where t2.field2 = ? ) set field1 = deact_status *; my ($dbh, $sth, $handle); $dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:Oracle:$db", $user, $pass) || die "Couldn't connect to database: " . DBI->errstr; open ($handle, $filename) || die "Couldn't open $filename for read.\n"; while (<$handle>) { chomp; $sth = $dbh->prepare_cached($query, {}, 1); $sth->execute($_); } $dbh->disconnect();
This is untested, but ought to work in theory.

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.
