If you had used the
	use strict;
pragma and the -w flag, you would have found your error immediately.

You assign your SQL string to the $isql variable, but then you pass
$sql to ct_execute().

Please take some time to read about the strict pragma, and maybe read
the two articles on useing sybperl that I've written, and that are
available from my web page.
