I am trying to insert the values from a CVS file (with the first row being headers) into an Access Database using a Perl script. The script works, but i need to exclude the first line of the csv file which contains the headers.

Any ideas?
use DBI;

$csvfile="C:/WeatherModel/degrib/bin/Model/Output/gfs_2010111900_72.csv";

$dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:ODBC:driver=Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb);dbq=c:/weathermodel/weathermodel.mdb', '', '');
$sth = $dbh->prepare( "INSERT INTO GFS_Forecasts VALUES (?,?,?,?,?,?)" );

open CSV, $csvfile;

while(<CSV>) {
  chomp;
  my @fields = split /,/;
  $sth->execute(@fields);
}

close CVS;

Open in new window

Hi kyle,

If I understand you correctly, you should be able to just insert "<CSV>;" between the "open..." and the "while...", like this:

    ...
    open CSV, $csvfile;
    <CSV>;
    while(<CSV>) {
    ...

That should read one line, and do nothing with it.
