The strangest Error Message EVER!
Hey, all. I'm stumped on this one. I have quite a few databases working alright, but this one just has be stumped. Here's the error message I'm getting.

Error Message : Error loading required libraries.
Check that they exist, permissions are set correctly and that they compile.
Reason: syntax error at ./agentshtml.pl line 871, near "/font>

So, ok... I'm accustomed to getting little errors when I first upload the database. Problem is that I've looked and looked around line 871 and can't see a thing wrong with it. So any suggestions would be hot. Here's the link to my html.pl file in txt form:


And here is the "offending line" and a few lines surrounding it (I added line numbers for this posting):

855: print qq|
856: <table width=100%>
857: <tr><td width=50%>$previous</td>
858: <td width=50% align=right>$next</td></tr>
859: <tr><td colspan=2 align=center>$list</td></tr>
860: <tr><td colspan=2 align=center><$font>Record $nh of $db_total_hits</font></table>
861: |;
862: }
864: # Below is where you define your form.
866: # <-- Start of record display -->
868: my $font_color = 'Font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" Size=2 Color=#003399';
871: print qq|
873: <table width="650" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="2">
874: <tr>
875: <td width="150"> </td>
876: <td>
877: <p><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><b>Agency Listing
878: - $rec{'Name'}</b></font></p>
879: <table width="400" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="2">
880: <tr valign="top">
881: <td width="74" bgcolor="#000000"><font 882: color="#FFFFFF"><b><$font>Address:</font></b></font></td>
883: <td width="313" bgcolor="#F3F3F3"><$font>$rec{'Address1'}

884: $rec{'Address2'}

885: <$font>$rec{'City'}, $rec{'State'} $rec{'Zip'</font></td>
886: </tr>

Any help would be grand. Many many thanks in advance, y'all!

You have a missing bracket here but I don't think that would cause the error.....

<$font>$rec{'City'}, $rec{'State'} $rec{'Zip'}</font></td>

Hehehehehehe... Yep, that was the whole problem. I'll be eating my hat in the corner if you need me. Thanks, Paul. You rock again.

You might want to also note that in this line:

860: <tr><td colspan=2 align=center><$font>Record $nh of $db_total_hits</font></table>

you are ending a table without first ending the cells, as you are missing </TD></TR> before the closing table tag.
