lastInsertId() variable in PHP not returning records when used in a select statement

Hi all.

I have the following code that is supposed to return some records based on lastInsertId() that is stored as a variable. Unfortunately, it's not returning any records when used in the select statements.

ShortageID is an INT data type and the select statement works when I remove the WHERE clause in the select statement. It returns all records, when I just want the record whose ShortageID = $ID.

What's wrong with my syntax?

Thank you in advance.

  $query = " 
            INSERT INTO ShortageDataEntry ( 
				ShortageProductID,
				Quantity,
	                UserID,
                CreateDate
            ) VALUES ( 

                :ShortageProduct, 
                :Quantity,
                :userid,
                :currentdatetime
            ) 
        "; 
                
        // Here we prepare our tokens for insertion into the SQL query.  
        $query_params = array( 
          
            ':ShortageProduct' => $_POST['ShortageProduct'], 
            ':Quantity' => $_POST['Quantity'], 
            ':userid' => $_SESSION['user']['userid'] ,
            ':currentdatetime' => $fdate
        ); 

$stmt = $db->prepare($query); 
            $result = $stmt->execute($query_params); 
            $ID=$db->lastInsertId(); 

 $smt = $db->prepare("SELECT ShortageProduct FROM ShortageDataEntry INNER JOIN ShortageProducts ON ShortageDataEntry.ShortageProductID = ShortageProducts.ShortageProductID WHERE ShortageDataEntry.ShortageID = '$ID'");


 $smt->bindColumn('ShortageProduct', $shortageproduct);
 $smt->fetch(PDO::FETCH_BOUND);

It may not be working because you are not using an 'autoincrement key field'.  That is what it is supposed to return.

I am using an autoincrement field.

 CREATE  TABLE  `myDB`.`ShortageDataEntry ` (  `ShortageID` int( 11  )  NOT  NULL  auto_increment ,
 `ShortageProductID` int( 11  )  NOT  NULL ,
 `Quantity` decimal( 11, 2  )  NOT  NULL ,
  `UserID` int( 11  )  NOT  NULL ,
 `CreateDate` datetime NOT  NULL ,
 PRIMARY  KEY (  `ShortageID`  )  ) ENGINE  =  MyISAM  DEFAULT CHARSET  = utf8;

What data base are you using?  What is the value that is returned in $ID?  How do you know if $stmt->execute() worked?

It's a MySQL database.

And I know it works because it inserts the new record in the table.

what driver for pdo are you using?

"Returns the ID of the last inserted row, or the last value from a sequence object, depending on the underlying driver. For example, PDO_PGSQL requires you to specify the name of a sequence object for the name parameter."

Wrong answer!  You know it worked, but there is a return value from the method and the script should be testing that return value.  You should also visualize the $ID value.

This article shows how I've mapped the MySQL functions to PDO.  I have found no trouble getting the id in these examples.

What was the solution?  The accepted answer is a cut-and-paste from the online man page for pdo::lastInsertId() and DaveBaldwin posted that link in the first response.

@loki0609: Me, too (sometimes I even read the fine manuals).  But I just want the author of the question to tell us what fixed his issue.
