I retrieve a resultset using Perl DBI. And print it in a HTML table. But whenever there are no value for particular column then there is no cell border. I want entire table whether the column has value or not.

check whether the value exists in your table,
and if the value is not defined, print " "
if (defined($columnvalue)) {
   print "<td>$columnvalue</td>";
   print "<td>&nbsp;</td>";
