That doesn't mean anything as far as Interchange is concerned. If you
use table=product_cat the product_cat table must exist as *an Interchange
database table*. Whether it exists as a MySQL database table is not

Sounds like you might want:

[perl table=products]

# FORGET the interpolate=1

	my $db = $Db{products}
		or return 'no products table!';

	my $set = $db->query('select * from product_cat')
		or return 'query failed!';

Remember, typing in an error check takes 10 seconds -- trying to
debug can take hours. That is why you should ALWAYS check errors
on this type of thing. I do it religiously, which is why I don't 
often get on long debugging sessions over simple problems.
