Using INSERT to add data into two tables

I have 2 tables. One table 'POHEADER' contains the address, vendor, and PO number. The second table 'PODETAILS' contains the product, quantity, pricing, etc..

I am trying to write a sequel that creates a PO automatically.

I am unsure on how to link up the POHEADER and PODETAILS so the PODETAILS writes data to the correct POHEADER. The primary key is 'POID' (assigned by the informix database) between the two tables.

This can only be done with two separate SQL Statements, inserting into POHEADER first, then into PODETAILS (assuming that you have Referential integrity active, so that a Detail record requires a corresponding header record to exist, before the detail can be inserted).


Insert into PoHeader Values (....)

execute that statement, then

Insert into PODetails values(...) with the POID from the inserted POHeader record.
