Shannon,

If your customer can exit out before they have completed all the forms do
you want their partial information in your database?
If you do not want incomplete records you will want to wait until all fields
have been completed before inserting.
Look into using sessions to store and pass fields between forms.
Otherwise inserting as they complete one form and move to the next wil not
take as much write time as one longer series of data.
