[SOLVED] Which insert method is better

I have about 150 rows that I'm inserting into my database.

 

Is it better to loop through the data doing a mysql_query() for each insert, or loop through the data creating a sql statement with a single insert.  See below for example:

 

<?php
// Multiple inserts in a loop
foreach ($row as $k => $v){
   $sql = "INSERT INTO table_name VALUES ($row[$k], $row[$k])";
   mysql_query($sql, $db);
}
?>

 

or

 

<?php
// Single insert after creating a string in the loop
foreach ($row as $k => $v){
   $sql .= "($row[$k], $row[$k]),";
}

// Remove final comma
rtrim($sql, ",");

$final_sql = "INSERT INTO table_name VALUES " . $sql;
mysql_query($sql, $db);
?>

 

Regards

Rich
