I want to thank all who replied. You were correct that the CGI
qw(:standard); wasn't the solution. It was in variable naming as suggested
which is one of the problems with cutting and pasting code from other
programs you omit a few things. I am still getting a server error at the
end but the main function of inserting the data into the database table is
working. The server error is telling me an unexpected end of script. I
will work on that later as this particular program is for the admin not the
public. Thanks again for all of your help. Hopefully someday I'll "GET"
this and be able to return the favors! :-)

I think use warnings would have done more good than use CGI. That would
have pointed out exactly what Japhy pointed out, that you changed variable
names in the file.
