Insert Multiple Record Issue

Insert Multiple Record Issue

I have the form that queries the database and makes a copy of all the records in the query and then inserts them into the database as a new record. For some reason, I can't get the page to work and I see no error message. Any thoughts?

Here is the code:
$rollover_year = $_GET['rollover_year'];
if (isset($_POST["submit"]) || isset($_POST["submit_x"])) {
$InsertQuery = new WA_MySQLi_Query($course_catalog);
$InsertQuery->Action = "insert";
$InsertQuery->Table = "courses";
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("course_number", "s", "".((isset($_POST["course_number"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["course_number"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("course_title", "s", "".((isset($_POST["course_title"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["course_title"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("stateID", "s", "".((isset($_POST["stateID"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["stateID"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("departmentID", "i", "".((isset($_POST["departmentID"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["departmentID"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("status", "s", "".((isset($_POST["status"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["status"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("description", "s", "".((isset($_POST["description"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["description"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("notes", "s", "".((isset($_POST["notes"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["notes"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("core_elective", "s", "".((isset($_POST["core_elective"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["core_elective"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("year", "s", "".((isset($_POST["year"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["year"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("subcategory", "s", "".((isset($_POST["subcategory"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["subcategory"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("grade_level", "s", "".((isset($_POST["grade_level"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["grade_level"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("pre_reqs", "s", "".((isset($_POST["pre_reqs"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["pre_reqs"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("credit_assignment", "s", "".((isset($_POST["credit_assignment"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["credit_assignment"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("course_designation", "s", "".((isset($_POST["course_designation"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["course_designation"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("modified_date", "t", "".((isset($_POST["modified_date"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["modified_date"]):"") ."", "WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertGoTo = "home.php";
if (function_exists("rel2abs")) $InsertGoTo = $InsertGoTo?rel2abs($InsertGoTo,dirname(__FILE__)):"";

<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post">
$wa_startindex = 0;
while(!$rollover_selection->atEnd()) {
$wa_startindex = $rollover_selection->Index;
<input type="hidden" name="status[]" id="status" value="Proposed">
<input type="hidden" name="course_number[]" id="course_number" value="<?php echo($rollover_selection->getColumnVal("course_number")); ?>">
<input type="hidden" name="description[]" id="description" value="<?php echo($rollover_selection->getColumnVal("description")); ?>">

<input type="hidden" name="notes[]" id="notes" value="<?php echo($rollover_selection->getColumnVal("notes")); ?>">
$rollover_selection->moveFirst(); //return RS to first record
<br><button type="submit" class="btn-lg btn-info" name="submit" id="submit">Yes, Rollover Now!</button>

Please attach the page when asking for help so I can open it in Dreamweaver and see it in context. I don't think this is the correct technique for this result. There are a variety of issues I can see, but I'd rather suggest a different approach.

You might consider using the "Execute Query" server behavior instead of the recordset and insert and hidden fields. All of this complexity can be avoided.

Just execute a query like:


if (isset($_POST["submit"]) || isset($_POST["submit_x"])) {
$ExecuteQuery = new WA_MySQLi_Query($vpleaguedb);
$ExecuteQuery->Statement "INSERT INTO courses (course_number, course_title, stateID, departmentID, `status`, description, notes, core_elective, `year`, subcategory, grade_level, pre_reqs, credit_assignment) (SELECT course_number, course_title, stateID, departmentID, 'Proposed' AS `status`, description, notes, core_elective, ? AS `year`, subcategory, grade_level, pre_reqs, credit_assignment FROM courses WHERE **your current rollover_selection filter**";
$ExecuteQuery->bindParam("i""".($_GET['rollover_year'])  ."""-1"); //yearparam
$ExecuteGoTo "home.php";
  if (
function_exists("rel2abs")) $ExecuteGoTo $ExecuteGoTo?rel2abs($ExecuteGoTo,dirname(__FILE__)):"";

Then you can remove the insert, recordset, and hidden form elements on your page.
