Products Insert into multiple categories

Products Insert into multiple categories

Hopefully you could help me with an easy way to do this. I've already built the DB, Product Catalog, dropdown-category menu and Product Admin using DA. With your help, all is working and our admin has already Inserted 150 products and they display well - so far so good. However, in products_insert.php(attached), each entry associates one product with one Category ID. It has now become clear, beyond the original requirements, that the company has the same product in multiple categories and it would save entering the same product multiple times if we could modify products_insert.php to allow entry of one product into products_insert.php and designate multiple Category IDs. Is there a simple modification like entering in the Category ID field multiple IDs maybe pipe delimited, eg 1|2|3 and modifying the code to insert multiple records in the DB or do I need to rebuild this whole thing?
Would appreciate any guidance or suggestions you can give.
