Need to create a new record in my merchant table while at the same time creating a new user which inserts the new merchantID in the user table?

Is it possible to insert two new records wit one form when one record is dependant on info from the other new record?

So my problem is this: I need to have merchants be able to log in and check their stats. My DB has a merchant table with all of their info.and a separate table for users which is used for logging in. My question is how to create records simultaneously on both tables?

These are my thoughts: is it possible to create a form that will insert a record into merchant table, retrieve that unique ID and then create a user where the ID is placed in a column on the user table?


Should I be looking at having a two login systems. One that retrieves data from from the user table and then have a separate login for merchants and just have their credentials stored on the merchant table?


Can you give me a better more simple solution that my inexperience won't allow me to find?

Thanks Guys!
