That made a world of difference! :) Thank you. But - I want to confirm, am I still using transactions even though I'm issuing individual query calls for each insert.
And, if I can ask another question to the list : In this line (from the second insert) VALUES (null, LAST_INSERT_ID(), ......)"; The LAST_INSERT_ID works great here, getting the auto-inc from the first insert, but will it work in subsequent insertions to other tables. I ask because in the second insert (shown), the LAST_INSERT_ID, gets the value from the first table, but the second table (second insert) also has an auto-inc column. So I'm thinking then the third insert will get the LAST_INSERT_ID from table 2 / 2nd insert. Perhaps I need to declare it the first time as a value (app code) or add "where" conditions to all the subsequent insertions ?
