Hi,

I hope someone can help. I am new to ruby and struggling with a hash and
some database connections. What I need to do is copy data from table in
a mysql database (2 columns), into a sqlite database (2 columns). I can
take the data out of the mysql database with this command:

my = Mysql.real_connect("server", "username", "password", "cnms")
##first db
db = SQLite3::Database.open( 'simo/db/development.sqlite3' ) ##second db
myresult = my.query("SELECT device_id, bytes_sourced FROM odma_unit")

I then put it into a hash like this:

myresult.each_hash do |row|

row.each do |key, value|

end
If I run a print command on it it spits out the correct data.

If i then insert into sqlite3 with the following commands:

stmt = db.prepare("insert into usages ( device_id, bytes_sourced )
values( 'key', 'value' )" )
stmt = stmt.execute

my.close
#db.close   ##this throws out an error
end

This inserts key and value in the correct columns and does the correct
amount of record entries.

Can some put me out of my misery and tell me where I am going wrong. I
know key and value in the sqlite3 statement may need to be variables,
but i am not sure what to make them. As you can see I am still new to
ruby so I am lost as to what i do and the hundreds of websites i have
read don't clear the mist in my brain.

Any help is really, really, really appreciated.

Thanks

Gigg
