PHP ODBC - Inserting Multiple Rows with a Subquery


PHP ODBC - How To Insert Multiple Rows with a subquery?

✍: Guest


If want to insert rows into a table based on data rows from other tables, you can use a subquery inside the INSERT statement as shown in the following script example:

  $con = odbc_connect('FYI_SQL_SERVER','sa','FYIcenter');

  $sql = "INSERT INTO fyi_links"
      . " SELECT id+1000, REVERSE(url), notes, counts, time"
      . " FROM fyi_links";
  $res = odbc_exec($con, $sql);
  if (!$res) {
    print("SQL statement failed with error:\n");
    print(odbc_error($con).": ".odbc_errormsg($con)."\n");
  } else {
    print("Multiple rows inserted.\n");


If you run this script, the table should have 4 rows now. And you will get:

Multiple rows inserted
