Re: InstantDB: How do I insert a value from a select statement?


Steve

InstantDB accepts a fixed set of values or the results from a single select as the values
for an insert. It doesn't accept multiple selects as the values for an insert.

If you need to use multiple inserts then you'll have to do a little bit of programming to
do the individual selects and then use the results to construct the insert.
