Hi all,

Wondering if anybody can help me out with something. I'm pulling a value from a table using the following query:


$q = "select MAX(id) from rma";
$result = mysql_query($q);
$data = mysql_fetch_array($result);
echo $data[0];


I have this query working, it pulls that largest id number from the table called rma. Now I want to take the value stored in $data and insert it into a different table. Any thoughts on how this can be accomplished?

Simply inserting the variable $data into my insert statement doesn't work.

I was able to get this fixed. I forgot to add the [0] to the insert query:


$sql = "INSERT INTO table SET ref_id='$data[0]';
