Good morning,
  I have a process where a user can input, edit or delete employee information.It's the example app that comes with CF6 and is working fine.

Here's what I need...the example app creates a UUID that is input into a text/35 length field in an Access employee table.  The UUID and insert statement is below.
 
I have a second table that contains a list of 300 questions

I would like to use that second table, marry it with the UUID and append the (tblemployee.UUID,tble2.*Data into a third table.

TblEmployee has 21 fields and tbl 2 is a series of 300 "questions/survery's" that have to be updated and changed periodically

Can you help?

<cfset NewEmpID = CreateUUID()>
                  
<cfquery name="AddEmployee" dataSource="vianalysis_mdb">
  INSERT INTO tblviater (EmployeeID, FirstName, LastName, Email, Phone, Addr1,Addr2,Addr3,City,State,Zip,Comments)
       values ('#NewEmpID#',
       <cfqueryparam value="#form.FirstName#" CFSQLType="CF_SQL_CHAR">,
       <cfqueryparam value="#form.LastName#" CFSQLType="CF_SQL_CHAR">,
       <cfqueryparam value="#form.Email#" cfsqltype="CF_SQL_VARCHAR">,
       <cfqueryparam value="#form.Phone#" cfsqltype="CF_SQL_VARCHAR">,
       <cfqueryparam value="#form.Addr1#" cfsqltype="CF_SQL_VARCHAR">,
       <cfqueryparam value="#form.Addr2#" cfsqltype="CF_SQL_VARCHAR">,
       <cfqueryparam value="#form.Addr3#" cfsqltype="CF_SQL_VARCHAR">,
       <cfqueryparam value="#form.City#" cfsqltype="CF_SQL_VARCHAR">,
       <cfqueryparam value="#form.State#" cfsqltype="CF_SQL_VARCHAR">,
       <cfqueryparam value="#form.Zip#" cfsqltype="CF_SQL_VARCHAR">,
       <cfqueryparam value="#form.Comments#" cfsqltype="CF_SQL_LONGVARCHAR">
     )
</cfquery>

anandkp,
  Table 2 is just a list of questions.
I want to take all of the table 2 questions plus the new UUID and insert all of that into table 3

fields in the tables

table 1 (UUID,First,Last)

table 2 (field1,field2,...)

merger into table 3

table 3 (tbl1.UUID,tbl2.field1,tbl2.field2, tbl2.field(...))

<cfset NewEmpID = CreateUUID()>

<!--- insert new employee--->
<CFQUERY dataSource="vianalysis_mdb" NAME="ins_emp">
     INSERT INTO table1  
      VAULES ('#NewEmpID#', '#FirstName#','#LastName#')
</CFQUERY>

<!--- grab all questions --->
<CFQUERY dataSource="vianalysis_mdb" NAME="sel_questions">
     SELECT *
     FROM table2  
</CFQUERY>

<!--- merge into table 3 --->
<CFQUERY dataSource="vianalysis_mdb">
     INSERT INTO table3  
      VAULES ('#NewEmpID#', '#sel_questions.field1#', '#sel_questions.field2#', '#sel_questions.field(...)#')

kkhipple,
 
That worked...partially.

It inserts the new record into table 1

But table two (the merge table) has 267 records in it that have to all go into table three with the NewEmpID on each row.

It's only inserting the top record.

Should I have some kind of cfloop statement?

Thanks,

yes. you'll need a loop


try this ----


<!--- merge into table 3 --->
<CFLOOP QUERY="sel_questions">
    <CFQUERY dataSource="vianalysis_mdb">
      INSERT INTO table3  
        VAULES    
('#NewEmpID#',  '#sel_questions.field1#',  '#sel_questions.field2#',  '#sel_questions.field(...)#')
     </CFQUERY>
</CFLOOP

kkhipple,
  You put me on the right track.  Thanks.  After merging your information with other cfloop questions I came up with the winner.

This is the code.

<!--Other queries first...........-->

<cfquery name="get_questions" datasource="vianalysis_mdb">
SELECT *
FROM Test_Questions
</cfquery>

<cfset Start=1>
<cfset End=267>
<cfloop query="get_questions"
   startrow="#Start#"
   endrow="#End#">
    <cfquery name="AddQuestions" dataSource="vianalysis_mdb">
       INSERT INTO test_input (EmployeeID, Question_ID, Test_ID, Sort_Order, Type, Question)
      values ('#NewEmpID#','#get_questions.Question_ID#',
      '#get_questions.Test_ID#','#get_questions.Sort_Order#',
      '#get_questions.Type#','#get_questions.Question#')
    </cfquery>
</cfloop>
