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?
