To reiterate:

You have two tables:

  CREATE TABLE A (id SERIAL, name TEXT);
  CREATE TABLE B (id INT, name TEXT);

You're able to insert the first table:

  ZSQL Method:  INSERT_A:

  INSERT INTO A (name) VALUES ('foo');

and retrieve the unique value:

  ZSQL Method:  GET_LAST_A:

  SELECT currval('A_id_seq');

  (or maybe you say something like SELECT max(id) FROM A, though
   the above is faster & safer)

and you want to insert into the second table with that retrieved value:

  ZSQL Method:  INSERT_B:

  INSERT INTO B (id, name)
   VALUES ( <dtml-var value_of_A >, 'foo');

and it 'says no value for the unique id retrieved' ?

Where does it say this? Are sure you're passing the retrieved last value
to your GET_LAST_A.

It would help to post your ZSQL methods and your controlling DTML method.
