Is it possible to have two insert statements on one query with PDO?  (Need one for Level 0 and one for level 1 as shown below)

$query6 = $conn->query('SELECT DISTINCT catidexp1 FROM download');

$statement = $conn->prepare('INSERT IGNORE INTO category_path (category_id,path_id,level) VALUES(:catid,:pathid,:level)');

$statement2 = $conn->prepare('INSERT IGNORE INTO category_path (category_id,path_id,level) VALUES(:catid,:pathid,:level)');

while ($row6 = $query6->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC)){
	
		$params = array(':catid'=>$row6['catidexp1'],':pathid'=>$row6['catidexp1'],':level'=>"0");
		$statement->execute($params); 

$params = array(':catid'=>$row6['catidexp1'],':pathid'=>$row6['catidexp1'],':level'=>"1");
		$statement->execute($params); 
	
}

Yes, you only need the one statement as they are doing the same thing

$query6 = $conn->query('SELECT DISTINCT catidexp1 FROM download');

$statement = $conn->prepare('INSERT IGNORE INTO category_path (category_id,path_id,level) VALUES(:catid,:pathid,:level)');

while ($row6 = $query6->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC)){
	$params = array(':catid'=>$row6['catidexp1'],':pathid'=>$row6['catidexp1'],':level'=>"0");
	$statement->execute($params); 

	$params = array(':catid'=>$row6['catidexp1'],':pathid'=>$row6['catidexp1'],':level'=>"1");
	$statement->execute($params); 
}
