capture id of index (identity) column after insert in cold fusion insert query

I have a query that I am executing:

<cftransaction isolation="serializable">

<cfquery name="enter_ms_values" datasource="my_DSN" result="music_insert">
INSERT INTO Music (church_ID,Music_Date,Music_Time,Performance_Type,Music_Location,Music_Desc,calendar_ID,user_id,created_by,created_date,created_time)
VALUES ('#church_id#', '#new_music_date#', '#new_music_time#','#new_performance_type#','#new_music_location#','#new_music_desc#','#calendar_id#','#posted_by#','#posted_by#','#dateformat(now(), 'mm/dd/yyyy')#','#TimeFormat(Now(),"hh:mm tt")#')
</cfquery>



      <cfoutput>
      <!--- this is where we capture the number of the identity/key column for music --->
      <CFPARAM NAME="new_music_id" DEFAULT="">
      <cfset new_music_id = "#??????????????#">      
       
       
       the number of my music even is "#new_music_id#"<br />
   
               
          </cfoutput>



I need the value that goes where I have put "????????"  - or - a  better way of getting it done, besides this way.




I need to capture the id of the key/identity column (music_id) for the table "music". When the information is added to the database, it represents the addition of a new music event - but I have to have the music event's Id  (music_id)  because I have to add other values to another table (see my second question) and I have to add the music_id to that table so that those values are associated with this music event by that number.

I am also a but fuzzy on 'table locking' because this table may be getting hit with multiple addition queries - and it is important to make sure that the right music_id is captured.

immediately after the insert statement run this , this will return the last inserted value
SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY()

what you need to do is this . After the insert query add this query and store the identity column

<cfquery name="MusicID" datasource="XXXXXXX">
                                    SELECT @@Identity AS MusicID
                              </cfquery>
            
            <cfset newMusicID= MusicID.MusicID>
The you can set the value

  <cfset new_music_id = "#newMusicID#">

Both of those are not good the best way to handle this the best way is to use the inbuilt functionality of Coldfusion:

http://www.forta.com/blog/index.cfm/2007/7/6/ColdFusion-8-Can-Return-Identity-Values
<cfquery name="enter_ms_values" datasource="my_DSN" result="music_insert">
INSERT INTO Music (church_ID,Music_Date,Music_Time,Performance_Type,Music_Location,Music_Desc,calendar_ID,user_id,created_by,created_date,created_time)
VALUES ('#church_id#', '#new_music_date#', '#new_music_time#','#new_performance_type#','#new_music_location#','#new_music_desc#','#calendar_id#','#posted_by#','#posted_by#','#dateformat(now(), 'mm/dd/yyyy')#','#TimeFormat(Now(),"hh:mm tt")#')
</cfquery>
 
<cfoutput> Total records: #music_insert.IDENTITYCOL#</cfoutput>

Jones911's suggestion is the most correct for CF8.

> SELECT @@Identity

In terms of sql only, aneeshattingal is correct.   SCOPE_IDENTITY() is generally preferred over @@Identity.
