View as plain text  
If you're inserting multiple rows in the dependent table for the same id in the parent table, you'll need to save the value of LAST_INSERT_ID(), otherwise subsequent inserts will change it!

INSERT INTO parent VALUES (...);
INSERT INTO child1 VALUES (@id, ... );
INSERT INTO child2 VALUES (@id, ... );

That seems to be the ticket.  Thanks!
