Neil, Have you had success with triggers. I couldn't get one to work and then saw discussion on the board here that MYSQL triggers were not so reliable and still somewhat problematic so I archive through the application.

"Easy" is to set a MySQL5 trigger which does the Insert on update : http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/triggers.html eg (from the manual page) : DELIMITER | CREATE TRIGGER testref BEFORE INSERT ON test1 FOR EACH ROW BEGIN INSERT INTO test2 SET a2 = NEW.a1; DELETE FROM test3 WHERE a3 = NEW.a1; UPDATE test4 SET b4 = b4 + 1 WHERE a4 = NEW.a1; END; | HTHCheers - Neil -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
