I need to get the id from a previous insert to use as a foreign ke in another table
I am using the connection pool below in a web application.
Can i use LAST_INSERT_ID() in this configuration whithout the risk of getting the wrong value?

If not what is another way of doing this?

At the very least, you will want to send the LAST_INSERT_ID query to the same connection which did the INSERT statement. None of the code you posted seems to show an example of what you are doing.

In that code I don't see where you do an insert before you do the SELECT @@IDENTITY query. Maybe that's your problem.

OMG you are the man. That was one of my other problems.
I must have overwrote the execute line when I pasted:


It helps to have a second pair of eyes.
This may relate to the second problem also.

Aside from that do you see any other flaws in the logic?
thanks
