Can you do something like this:

$result = mysql_query($sql,$connection) or die("Couldn't execute insert.");
     
         
$result2 = mysql_query($sql2,$connection) or die("Couldn't execute 2nd insert.");


If not is it possible to insert into 2 different tables in one statement?

yes, you can - there is no way to insert into 2 tables with one SQL.

TIP: if you insert 2 records into the same table you can use

insert into TABLE (field1,field2) values (val1_1,val_2),(val2_1,val2_2)
