Insert into data into two tables from one insert form

Insert into data into two tables from one insert form

Not sure if this is possible.

I have a many to many relationship for attaching Users to Agents (Companies). I'm using a Users table, an Agents table, and an interlinking table:

Users

UserID (PK)
AgentID
Firstname
Lastname
etc

Agents:

AgentID (PK)
Company
etc

Agent_Users
AUID (PK)
UserIDIT
AgentIDIT

Currently adding a new user, and associating it with an agent is a two step process.

1. Create the new user (but from a page for the Agency, allowing me to at least store the correct AgentID value in the Users table)

2. Insert UserIDIT and AgentIDIT into the Agent_Users table.

My question is, is it possible at all to do this in one step?

It would just need to both;

1. Insert the new record into the Users table
2. Insert the UserID of the newly created user plus the AgentID of the company into the Agent_Users table as UserIDIT and AgentIDIT

Hope I've explained that well enough?

Thanks.

Yes, you can do both inserts with the same trigger and refer to the newly inserted id in the second insert. Just make sure the two inserts are in the correct order on the page and that the first insert doesn't redirect before the second one has a chance to run.

Do I refer to the newly inserted ID in the POST part of the insert code at the top of the page, or refer to it has a hidden field in the form?

I'm just a bit unsure about the syntax also.

I have attached a copy of the page as it currently is.

Thanks.

You specify a session variable name to save the inserted id. That is available in the UI as Save As.

Then you can refer to it from the session like: <?php echo($_SESSION['SaveAsName']); ?> (assuming you entered SaveAsName in the inserted id Save As field.

I'm running DW2017, so not sure if I can get the WA UI up these days.

But I basically need to store the first InsertID into a session, and then instead of:

<input type="hidden" name="UserIDIT" id="UserIDIT" value="<?php echo ["[InsertID]"]; ?>" />

Have

<input type="hidden" name="UserIDIT" id="UserIDIT" value="<?php echo($_SESSION['SaveAsName']); ?>" />

?

I've added code to store the InsertID as a session variable between the two inserts, but not sure the syntax is correct?

Its not storing anything in that field (the UserIDIT value in the agent_users table)

Have attached the current page.

Just specify the session variable name to save on line 81 like:

$WA_sessionName = "SaveNewID";

Then you can use it when doing the next insert. You don't need to manually add any code in between the inserts.

Still missing something - I have done that, but its not storing it. Does it know that that sessionName value is the InsertID, for does that need a reference somewhere else?

I have line 81:

$WA_sessionName = "NewUserID";

and line 778:

<input type="hidden" name="UserIDIT" id="UserIDIT" value="<?php echo($_SESSION['NewUserID']); ?>" />

Think I'm missing the part where the InsertID is saved as 'NewUserID' - can that be done with manual code if I can't get the UI up?

The easiest way is to do it in the code on line 81. Just set the value of $WA_sessionName and it will save the inserted ID into the session with that name.
