hi folks im my query was running fine until i tried to use the last insert id to insert into another table.  here is my sql

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[spregistration]
      @title Varchar(25),
      @firstName Varchar(50),
      @lastName Varchar(50),
      @emailAddress Varchar(150),
      @password Varchar(50),
      @institution Varchar(300),
      @nickname Varchar(100),
      @autherised int,
      @userid int = Null

AS
      INSERT INTO users (title,firstName,lastName,emailAddress,password,institution,nickname,autherised) VALUES
      (@title,@firstName,@lastName,@emailAddress,@password,@institution,@nickname,@autherised)
      SET @userid = SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY()
      INSERT INTO userPriv_pivot (user_id,privelige_level)(@userid,5)

im sure its really simple, it did work fine until i added the lines

@userid int = Null

and

SET @userid = SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY()
INSERT INTO userPriv_pivot (user_id,privelige_level)(@userid,5)

thanks in advance

Hello andrew67,

It should be:

Set @userid = Scope_Identity()
INSERT INTO userPriv_pivot (user_id,privelige_level) Values(@userid,5)

There is no need for the "SELECT" there and you were also missing the VALUES keyword on the subsequent insert statement.

Regards,

TimCottee
