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 ;

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?
