How can I write a mysql query that will insert into multiple tables from multiple tables. I know that you can select multiple tables and insert into a single one. I am trying to duplicate a customer that has an id in all of my tables. I simply want to make a copy of this customer data and update another customer. So the only thing changing is the ID.

You can't.  A single INSERT statement will only insert into one table.  You need to execute a separate
statement for each table you want to insert into.

You can also use an INSERT Trigger on the table in which you are inserting the records. The trigger will then have to insert these new values into the additional tables
