Im trying to create a temporary table as a select statement, then sequentially insert stuff as one prepared statement..

CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE AAAA as (SELECT.....); INSERT INTO AAAA ....;

but it wont get past the first ";"

If I run the first statement alone it works fine..

you simply can not

your front-end language (ADO etc) for sure doesn't allow for multiple statements

you can just do this in sequence, as "prepared statements" have no sense in MySql and Oracle if the cache stuff is working properly (MySql 4+)

CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE AAAA SELECT * FROM .... WHERE ...;
INSERT INTO AAAA VALUES(...);
INSERT INTO AAAA VALUES(...);
INSERT INTO AAAA VALUES(...);

You can build a single INSERT to insert multiple records, but you will have to send the CREATE and INSERT separately.

INSERT INTO table (a,b,c) VALUES (1,2,3),(4,5,6)
