How to retrieve data related to last id inserted into database

I had this question after viewing fade new row in after record insert with jQuery/ajax/php.


So, this loads the last record inserted ID into the table of records and fades in as I wanted per the above question.

$stmt = $link->prepare("INSERT INTO `voucher_categories`(`category_name`) VALUES (?)");
$stmt->bind_param("s", $_POST['cat_name']);
$stmt->execute();
echo $myoutput  = $stmt->insert_id;
$stmt->close();

Open in new window

     

The problem is, I don't actually want the ID number to display, but rather the category name for that particular ID. Do I need to run another SELECT prepared statement or is there a way to do that in the existing (above) prepared statement?

The information you want is already present in $_POST['cat_name'], so you can just do something like this:
echo htmlentities($_POST['cat_name']);

Open in new window

Haha, I can't believe it is that simple. I am always looking at trying to complicate things when it can be something so simple. Thank you!
