Duplicate Quotation - What is the best approach for a stored proceedure to do this,

Hi everyone,

I need to make a stored procedure that looks at a quotation and then duplicates it.

A single 'Quotation' exists in four tables, one is a 'quote master table', one is 'quote notes table'  another is 'quote offers master table' and one is 'offer details'

Each table's entries are linked together through a common identifier (the quote number on the master record) and then another identifier for each entry (except in the master record table of course)

A couple ways I have thought of doing this is via ASP and SQL (asp looping and running a series of queries to insert what it finds only with the new quote number) but this would be ridiculously slow.

The other way would obviously be a stored procedure that you feed an existing quote number and a new quote number, then it perform all the logic necessary to do the job.

However I don't know how to 'for each' in sql for every record it finds, whilst I am sure there is a way I have been told that it the equivalent 'for each' method is a bad idea.

I have included a detailed description of the tabels in the code box (sorry that it is lengthy but i didn't want to leave anything out)

So how do I go about this? :D

Big thank you in advance.

Xavier.
