I think you're problem is the JOIN on the insert. I don't know of any database that would support that. You've got to break it down into two separate insert statements, one per table. If they need to be done as a whole, then you'll need to enclose them in a transaction and do a commit or rollback. Also, if you're going to use prepared statements, you should look at how to use them. When using the (?, ?, ?, ...) form that prepared statement allow, you get the benefit of not having to deterime whether the parameter will require single quotes or not.

Donna, you cannot insert into two tables. Or rather, I know of no database that supports such action.
You have to break the statement.
