in thread Pre-process csv files before using

I would check if there are proper values in your @origcols array.

Do something like this before you get into the loop to modify it

map { print $_,$/ } @origcols;
If you see proper output then need to look at other places. Example of your header data will be helpful!

Actually davidrw's grep solution is much cleaner!

    This is a small sample of the header data

    In the original data, some of the headers have periods in them. This causes SQL error, so I've been stripping them in a preprocessing program. I'm trying to stream line this, and get rid of the preprocessor.

    To test this I've been adding a period in one of the fields. Thats when I get the error. I have inserted a period in the second header value to simulate what I am trying to strip.
