I have built the INSERT statement below using PERL. If I use a MS/Access Query and paste the SQL the statement it inserts a new row in the DB. However when I try to run it inside of perl with Roth's $db->Sql($sql) statement I am receiving the error:

---------- Error Report: ----------
Errors for "12" on connection 2:
Connection Number: 2
Error number: -1002
Error message: "[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Invalid bracketing of name '[4.5]'."

Access is confused about the dot (.) in 4.5. Enclosing the values in single quotes would solve the problem as:

Grrrr....Microsoft, the product that everyone loves to hate! I tried every combination other than your solution, which worked. I escaped the single quotes and off it went.

Thanks so very much!
