select and insert


Recommended Posts

im unable to find an example when it comes to select and insert in my particular case, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

here is my 2 select queries which retrieve the department_id and task_type_id.  what i want to do it is use those two values inside an insert as well as adding additional values.

 

SELECT department_id FROM departments WHERE department = "Gas Servicing"
SELECT task_type_id FROM task_Types WHERE task_type = "Gas Service"

INSERT INTO property_appointments (property_id, department_id, task_type_id, notes, priority_days) 
                           VALUES (:property_id, ?, ?, :notes, 1)

 

is this possible please?

 

thank you

I would n't use an INSERT  ... SELECT statement in this case. Just an normal insert with a couple of subqueries

INSERT INTO property_appointments (property_id, department_id, task_type_id, notes, priority_days) 
VALUES ( :property_id
         , (SELECT department_id FROM departments WHERE department = :deptname)
         , (SELECT task_type_id FROM task_Types WHERE task_type = :taskname)
         , :notes
         , 1 );

the simpliest ways are always the best. :suicide:
