Insert records into a table from the results of another query

I have a function similar to the one below. I want to perform the update in the first query and then insert some data into a different table in the 2nd query using the record numbers (ID)s that were updated in the first query. Could someone assist?  The first query is fine... the 2nd doesn't work obviously. The ID is the primary key for the records in the first query.

<cffunction name="myFunction" output="false" access="remote" returntype="string" hint="">
	<cfargument required="true" type="string" name="Name" />
	<cfargument required="true" type="string" name="Age" />

<cfquery ...>
			UPDATE MYDB.table
			set Status = 'Complete', Notes = 'blah' 
			where Age = <cfqueryparam value = "#Trim(ARGUMENTS.Age)#" CFSQLType = "CF_SQL_VARCHAR"> 			
</cfquery>

--------this is where i want to insert a record for each of the ones that were updated above....

<cfquery ...>
	INSERT INTO myDB.Table2 (ID, age, blah)
	VALUES ...
</cfquery>

Open in new window

I know this isn't a complete query/example but I am hoping I gave enough information. Thank you.

You didn't mention your DBMS, but if it's SQL Server 2005+ use an OUTPUT clause to capture the id's of the records updated in a table. Then JOIN to it in an INSERT/SELECT.

* Omitted cftransaction for brevity

<cfquery ....>
<!--- temp table to hold changed id's --->
DECLARE @UpdatedRecords TABLE ( ID INT )

<!--- update value and save ID's to temp table --->
UPDATE  SomeTable
SET       Status = 'Complete', Notes = 'blah'
OUTPUT Inserted.ID INTO @UpdatedRecords
WHERE  Age = <cfqueryparam value = "#Trim(ARGUMENTS.Age)#" ....etc.... >

<!--- insert NEW values into another table --->
INSERT INTO OtherTable (ID, Age, Status)
SELECT  t.ID, t.Age, t.Status
FROM    SomeTable t INNER JOIN @UpdatedRecords tmp ON tmp.ID = t.ID
</cfquery>
