Trying to do a multiple insert into 2 tables

Trying to do a multiple insert into 2 tables

Hi Ray

I'm trying to insert new users into two tables, users and site_members.

I want the newly created users.UserID from the first insert behaviour to be inserted into the site_members.sm_user_id field - but it doesn't appear in the list of available fields.

(The insert single record behaviour creates a session variable for the field, so I can do it for adding records individually).

Any directions much appreciated.

If I'm understanding you correctly, this will have to be hand coded.

I see your queryobj and rsobj includes are too low on the page... move those up.

Then you can manually add code to the first multiple insert code to make it do two inserts like:


if (isset($_POST["btnAdduser"]) || isset($_POST["btnAdduser_x"])) {  // updated manually
$MultipleInsertConnection $connEGM_i;
$MultipleInsertTable "users";
$MultipleInsertRedirect "2-users_MultiInsert.php?ins=success";
$MultipleInsertCheck "fmEmail";
$MultipleInsertIdentifier 'wamultiinsert_1';
  for (
$mi=0$mi<sizeof($_POST[$MultipleInsertIdentifier]); $mi++) {
$MultipleInsertCount $_POST[$MultipleInsertIdentifier][$mi];
    if ((
$MultipleInsertCheck == "" || (isset($_POST[$MultipleInsertCheck.'_'.$MultipleInsertCount]) && $_POST[$MultipleInsertCheck.'_'.$MultipleInsertCount]!=""))) {
$InsertQuery = new WA_MySQLi_Query($MultipleInsertConnection);
$InsertQuery->Action "insert";
$InsertQuery->Table $MultipleInsertTable;
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("UserEmail""s""".((isset($_POST["fmEmail"."_".$MultipleInsertCount]))?$_POST["fmEmail"."_".$MultipleInsertCount]:"")  ."""WA_IGNORE");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("UserPassword""s""".((isset($_POST["pwd"."_".$MultipleInsertCount]))?$_POST["pwd"."_".$MultipleInsertCount]:"")  ."""WA_IGNORE");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("UserFirstName""s""".((isset($_POST["firstname"."_".$MultipleInsertCount]))?$_POST["firstname"."_".$MultipleInsertCount]:"")  ."""WA_IGNORE");
$InsertQuery->bindColumn("UserLastName""s""".((isset($_POST["surname"."_".$MultipleInsertCount]))?$_POST["surname"."_".$MultipleInsertCount]:"")  ."""WA_IGNORE");
$InsertQuery2 = new WA_MySQLi_Query($MultipleInsertConnection);
$InsertQuery2->Action "insert";
$InsertQuery2->Table "site_members";
$InsertQuery2->bindColumn("sm_site_id""i""".$InsertQuery->InsertID  ."""WA_DEFAULT");
$InsertQuery2->bindColumn("sm_site_user""i""".$_SESSION['SiteID']  ."""WA_DEFAULT");
  if (
$MultipleInsertRedirect) {
    if (
function_exists("rel2abs")) $MultipleInsertRedirect rel2abs($MultipleInsertRedirect,dirname(__FILE__));
header("location: " $MultipleInsertRedirect);

Then delete the second multiple insert entirely.

Did this help? Tips are appreciated...


Hi Ray

Thank you so much - modified a field name and it works a treat!

Just need to add validation to the email address now.

Many thanks, once more, and best wishes for Christmas and beyond.
