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

The Perl side of this is pretty simple

# connect to the database and set date format # for these reports dates are likey truncated somehome my $dbh = connectdb(); $dbh->do("alter session set nls_date_format='dd Month yyyy hh24:mi:ss' +"); # uncomment the following for long running reports $dbh->do("alter session disable parallel query"); $dbh->do(qq(alter session set "_b_tree_bitmap_plans"=false)); $dbh->do("alter session set db_file_multiblock_read_count=2048"); # compile the SQL my $sth = $dbh->prepare(SQL); # run the query $sth->execute(); # retrieve the names of the columns returned and write header line my @names = @{$sth->{NAME}}; # create a hash based on the first column my %data = %{$sth->fetchall_hashref($names[0])}; print Dumper(%data);

What I'd essentially expect is 2 strings, one the key and the second the XML. I'd then parse the XML to get my columns and fill the data in. The intention is to have this as a simple template so anyone can copy the file, edit the SQL (just changing limits, and data items) and the report would generate what's needed. I already have this for basic list reports.

The issue seems that somewhere in the data line the XML shown as a string in SQLPlus is getting converted somehow.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
