Hi everyone.
I have the following MySQL stored procedure which works fine.
The only thing is, is that it only allows me to insert one record at a time.
What I would like to do is to modify this so that I can use this sproc, but insert as many records as required.
Any help greatly appreciated.

Usage is:
call paraddproject ('MySQL Server Upgrade Project');

What I would like is the following:

call paraddproject (
'MySQL Server Upgrade Project',
'Another Project',
'Another Project2',
'Another Project3'
);

Thanks guys.
Usage: call paraddproject ('SQL Server Upgrade Project');
*************************************************************************/
DELIMITER // CREATE PROCEDURE paraddproject(
IN projectname varchar(255)
)
BEGIN
INSERT INTO projects_pro (name_pro) values
(projectname);
END;
//
DELIMITER ;

Stored procedures accept a set number of parameters. Are you using PHP on this, because PHP has an explode() function you can use, and just pass the entire list of parameters as one comma separated string.

You can also write a stored procedure that accepts one long string which is comma separated, but in MySql this might become an exciting little venture with lots of substring and charindex calls!

Hi Goodangel and klay8....really appreciate your kind input guys :>)

Goodange....i use php, but not sure how i would implement using the explode with a stored procedure.

Maybe something like...

$array = ('a,b,c,d,e');
call spmy_storedprocedure ('explode(',',$array)')

Is this the way you meant goodange?
