i have a code it is written like this
#!/usr/bin/perl $first = $field{'first'}; $last = $field{'last'}; $address = $field{'address'}; $email = $field{'email'}; $phone = $field{'phone'}; $user = $field{'user'}; $pass = $field{'pass'}; use DBI; $dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:ODBC:'driver = Driver do Microsoft Access(*.m +db); dbq=test.mdb'"); print"<html><body><h1>this is a test</h1>"; $sql = qq{INSERT INTO Dreamcpu(FirstName, LastName, Address, Email, Ph +one, Username, Password) VALUES ('$first', '$last', '$adress', '$emai +l','$phone', '$user', '$pass');}; $rc = $dbh->do($sql); print"$rc record(s) were added.<p>"; $sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT ID,FirstName,LastName,Address,Email,Phone +,Username,Password FROM Dreamcpu"); $sth->executive(); print"<table>\n"; print"<tr> <th>ID</th> <th>First</th> <th>Last</th> <th>Address</th> < +th>Email</th> <th>Phone</th> <th>User</th> <th>Password</th>\n"; while (@row = $sth->fetchrow_array) { print"<tr>"; foreach(@row) { print"<td>$_</td>"; } print"</tr>\n"; } print"</table>\n"; print"</body></html>"; $sth->finish; $dbh->disconnect;
when i goto the webpage i get the following error
CGI Error The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete s +et of HTTP headers. The headers it did return are: Can't locate object method "connect" via package "DBI" (perhaps you fo +rgot to load "DBI"?) at C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\cgi-bin\ line +12.

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.
