I have 1-many number of records that need to be entered into a table. What is the best way to do this in a query? Should I just make a loop and insert one record per iteration? Or is there a better way?
From the MySQL manual
INSERT statements that use VALUES syntax can insert multiple rows. To do this, include multiple lists of column values, each enclosed within parentheses and separated by commas. Example:
INSERT INTO tbl_name (a,b,c) VALUES(1,2,3),(4,5,6),(7,8,9);
