Hi

Is there anyway to speed up master detail inserts if the master table has an autoinc primary key.

Is there a better way than this:

START TRANSACTION;
NSERT master (field1,field2) VALUES (data1,data2);
INSERTdetail (foreign_key, field1,field2) VALUES (last_insert_id(), data3,data4);
INSERTmaster (field1,field2) VALUES (data5,data6);
INSERT detail (foreign_key,field1,field2) VALUES (LAST_INSERT_ID,data7,data8);
COMMIT;

IS there a way of using mysqlimport or load data file for master detail data in separate tab files when the master table has an autoinc primary key?

thanks
