I am developing a video uploading website. One of the upload criteria is to associate a video with as many courses or as many modules as the user chooses.

I relise that I need multiple tables to achieve this and have the tables as follows:

Video: VideoNo, VideoName, UserNo. UploadDate, VideoUrl etc
Module: ModuleNo, ModuleName
Course: CourseNo, CourseName
VideoAssociation: VideoAssociationNo, CourseNo, ModuleNo, VideoNo

I have two drop downs that users can select from and add them to list (Both Course and Module). The user then adds all other details about the video and uploads it.
I would like every course and module that is added to those lists to be added as an entry to the database table (VideoAssociation).
All of the other details would be wriiten to the video table.
The trouble is to write to the VideoAssociation table I would need a VideoNo as the identifier and that is not assigned until the video is added to the video table.

I need help how to write a query or multiple queries in a stored procedure to add all entries to the VideoAssociation Table after inserting the video details.
I think aloop would have to be used to get entries from the courses and modules lists, but I don't know where to start?
I have included an image of the interface and the stored procedure I have written so far.

ALTER PROCEDURE dbo.sprocUploadVideo
