I'll give you the best explanation I can of the Perl part:
Assuming $dbh is a database handle and you're using DBI, it attempts to prepare a sql statement
if exists(select 1 from INFORMATION_SCHEMA +.tables where table_name = 'DSR_SMR_Result_storage_keep') begin DROP +TABLE DSR_SMR_Result_storage_keep end
and gives an error if it can't prepare it.

It does so by 1) setting the sql statement to a scalar variable, 2) declaring another scalar, and 3) using a previously prepared database handle to prepare the sql statement.

Of course, you don't actually need to know much Perl to know that; I'm sure anyone who worked in any language could tell you that. I'd suspect you yourself knew that already.

That's why people keep telling you you're not asking Perl questions. If my answer above was actually helpful, maybe you really are having Perl problems. If not, you should go to some other forum with this stuff. Believe it or not, generally Sql Server experts know more about T-SQL than Perl experts (not that I'm claiming particular expertise), and you'd get far better answers to your questions.

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.
