I've tried following the PHP.net instructions for doing
SELECT queries but I am not sure the best way to go about doing this.
I would like to use a parameterized
SELECT query, if possible, to return the
ID in a table where the
name field matches the parameter. This should return one
ID because it will be unique.
I would then like to use that
ID for an
INSERT into another table, so I will need to determine if it was successful or not.
I also read that you can prepare the queries for reuse but I wasn't sure how this helps.
