I'm not sure whether this answers your question, since you just said you have trouble (but
not, which trouble): have you tried to fiddle with the connection parameter
mysql_use_result (as per the DBD::mysql docs)? If set to false (the default), the result
set for some select that you do may just be buffered locally.
Alternatively, are you connecting to a transactional table, and may the transaction still
be in progress? Are you doing your select in a loop for contunuous updating, or how do you
control whether the external table update is somewhere between your selects? Given the
current lot of information, it is hard to tell.
