SQL syntax for returning multiple values from a select?

The DBI doc's seem to indicate that multiple values can be
returned from an insert query.

	insert into foo
	( bar bletch )
	( bar$seq.nextval, bletch$seq.nextval )

I've tried variations on "( bar, bletch ) into (?,?)" with
and without parens and "bar into ?, bletch into ?" without
any luck so far...

What is the correct sql syntax (googling variations on the
select returning syntax hasn't gotten me anywhere).



Oracle supports an extended SQL insert syntax which will return
one or more of the values inserted. This can be particularly useful
for single-pass insertion of values with re-used sequence values
(avoiding a separate "select seq.nextval from dual" step).

  $sth = $dbh->prepare(qq{
      INSERT INTO foo (id, bar)
      VALUES (foo_id_seq.nextval, :bar)
      RETURNING id INTO :id
  $sth->bind_param(":bar", 42);
  $sth->bind_param_inout(":id", \my $new_id, 99);
  print "The id of the new record is $new_id\n";

If you have many columns to bind you can use code like this:

  @params = (... column values for record to be inserted ...);
  $sth->bind_param($_, $params[$_-1]) for (1..@params);
  $sth->bind_param_inout(@params+1, \my $new_id, 99);

Multiple-Select Listbox only returns first selected value (and I'm not using SelectedItem...)
I'm looping through the items of a listbox, as you can see I'm raising a custom event, passing the selected values with custom event args up...  What happens however, is that only the first item will be tagged as being selected, no matter how many listbox items I select with control. Ie If I select "Transducer, Pressure Transmitter, Pressure & Temperature" the following is returned: Transducer is selected;Pressure transmitter is not selected;Pressure & Temperature is not selected; I encoded the ampersand & so do not worry about string concat.

sql select fails to return value
Hello there! I have a database in access and I'm trying (with perl using DBI and DBD::ODBC in win32) to select specific fields from it and write them to a file. The script that I'm using is the one I'm providing below. The connection to the database works fine but I think there is a problem with the SELECT statement. The only thing that gets printed in the file is DBI::st=HASH(0x1914394) which is the only thing that I get as a response when the script runs. Essentially the problem is that I can not print the results of the query. Do you have any ideas on this? Any help wo...

You also might want to post exact versions of ASE and ODBC driver, including Open ...

Select Distinct returns multiple rows with same value
I have a Select Distinct myfield that returns multiple rows with same value for myfield when it should only one. Why is this happening? Are you selecting other fields, as well?  If you select multiple fields, and one of those other fields is not the same for all records having the same 'myfield' value, then they are not the same value. For example, if you select Distinct(myfield) and myfield_2, if all rows having a myfield value of '1' all have the same myfield_2 value of '6', then only one row is returned. If one row having myfield = '1', a...
