SSI Script within Perl Script

I have the below script where I want to return options selected from dropdown box. If respondents selects other specify then need to show the text entered. It is not working. What is the mistake?

[% begin unverified perl
if(VALUE("Q5A1_r1_c1") le 28) {return [%Label(Q5A1_r1_c1)%];}
if(VALUE("Q5A1_r1_c1") eq 29) {return [%Q5A1_r1_c2%];}
end unverified %]

Please change this to

[% begin unverified perl
if(VALUE("Q5A1_r1_c1") le 28) {return LABEL('Q5A1_r1_c1');}
if(VALUE("Q5A1_r1_c1") eq 29) {return VALUE('Q5A1_r1_c2');}
end unverified %]

[%...%] will not work within unverified perl.

Use directly LABEL in caps after return.

Perl is case sensitive so your variables and functions you use must follow the syntax rules. Sawtooth HELP clearly describes how all functions in Perl should be written (search for Perl)). Write your variables exactly how you defined them in your survey.
