#if $dbh is your database handle:
my $sth = $dbh->prepare('INSERT INTO table (Name, Value) VALUES (?, ?)')
  or die "Could not prepare: $DBI::errstr\n";
my $value1='ABCD|CDE|EDFF';
my $value2='1234|321|234';
 
for my $v2 (split/\|/, $value2) {
	for my $v1 (split/\|/, $value1) {
		$sth->execute($v1, $v2) or die "Could not execute: $DBI::errstr\n";
	}
}
