How to go about doing this?

All forms seem to be working correctly right now with the register form creating my client record. The way my tables are setup, my projects records cannot exist without having a clientid attached to it.

The way the forms work is that first the client registers and is taken to the projects page (this works like a charm). The project form seems to work fine except that it can't create the record because it doesn't have the client id for it. It gives me this error:

"Cannot add or update a child row: a foreign key constraint fails (`zonapromo/Projects`, CONSTRAINT `fk_Projects_Clients1` FOREIGN KEY (`Clients_IDclient`) REFERENCES `Clients` (`IDclient`) ON DELETE NO ACTION ON UPDATE NO ACTION)"

I changed the foreign key setting for the project table hoping it would help and get this:

"Cannot add or update a child row: a foreign key constraint fails (`zonapromo/Projects`, CONSTRAINT `fk_Projects_Clients1` FOREIGN KEY (`Clients_IDclient`) REFERENCES `Clients` (`IDclient`) ON DELETE CASCADE ON UPDATE CASCADE)"

I don't know anything about database work and am really just getting into it. I'm wondering if a php session would allow me to retrieve the client id from the database and have a field in the project form retrieve the data from the session. In turn, the project from would send the clientid into the project table. I have been looking into the WA Cookies Extension and think it can be done, I just can't find how to retrieve the data from the database into the session variable.

Any help would be great.
