Trying to use DBI::SQLite

Trying to use DBI::SQLite

Trying to use DBI::SQLite

I have used DBI::Oracle in the past, but now I need to use DBI::SQLite and it seems the connection structure is different.

CODE --> Perl

#### program variables

$dbsys     = "spwdclwsntdb1";
$user      = "lawsonpf";
$pass      = "##########";
$dsn       = "DBI:SQLite:dbname=$dbsys";

use DBI;

$dbh=DBI->connect($dsn, $user, $pass) or die;

$sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT * FROM EMPLOYEE")
        or die "Couldn't prepare statement: " . $dbh->errstr; 

I changed the password to all #'s.

The error I am getting is that it cannot find the table EMPLOYEE. The table EMPLOYEE is under DEV. I don't see where to put that.

In Oracle I used dev.EMPLOYEE, I tried that in SQLite and it can not find the table.

There are no errors on the connection, just the prepare.

Does anybody see what I am doing wrong?

RE: Trying to use DBI::SQLite

I forgot to mention that this is a Windows/SQL machine and in the past I was working on a Unix/Oracle machine.

RE: Trying to use DBI::SQLite

And have you tried to use the qualified name for the table in your select i.e



RE: Trying to use DBI::SQLite

add some debug commands.

Is DBI:SQLite part of DBI or do you have to instantiate it other than use DBI?

use warnings;

Do you have any special characters in "$pass"?

$dbh=DBI->connect($dsn, $user, $pass) or die "print $!\";

RE: Trying to use DBI::SQLite

I tried dev.employee and got the same result.

I do have 2 $$ characters in $pass and I have asked for a password with no special characters.

RE: Trying to use DBI::SQLite

My database is DEV and my server is spwdclwsntdb1

RE: Trying to use DBI::SQLite

This is closed, the problem was that SQL was not setup correctly.
