For some reason I have better luck with fetchrow_hashref. Same general
idea, just returns a hash reference to the row you're looking for.

my $query = "select * from foo";
my $sth = $dbh->prepare($query);
while (my $row = $sth->fetchrow_hashref()) {
    print Dumper $row;

Members of $row are accessed by dereffing the hash, e.g. $row->{id} .
