Html table in Perl

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>";
}else{
   print "<td>&nbsp;</td>";
}

Change:
    print qq[<td style="">] .escapeHTML($cell). qq[</td>];
To:
    print qq[<td style="">] .(escapeHTML($cell) or "&nbsp;"). qq[</td>];
