	Mike, How are you?

	Yes, You point to the correct place in it complains.

	Here is the piece of the code which blows.
	my @bookgroup = $DBH->ct_sql("


            select book_group=rtrim(book_group) from pl_dms_book_name

        ", undef, CS_TRUE);

        die "\tselect book_group failed\n" if ($DBH->{RC} == CS_FAIL);  

	thanks in advance.

It would appear to come from this code:

        while ($data = $db->ct_fetch($flag, 1)) {
            if (defined $sub) {
		if($flag) {
		} else {
            } else {
		if($flag) {
		    push(@res, {%$data});   # <---- here??
		} else {
		    push(@res, [@$data]);

in the ct_sql() function. My guess is that there is some confusion
internally in perl here, maybe because the $data value doesn't have an
even number of elements?

It would help to see the query that generates this, and the source perl
code maybe, and ideally some output...
