Hi Greg,

as you posted on triggers forum, I immediately assumed you had some MySql >= 5 version. Triggers, Views and Stored procedures / functions are all >= 5 features. So, my little trick definitely needs >= 5.

I'm glad you provided the extra info though. Have you considered using InnoDB tables in order to use the transaction technology supported by MySQL? I recommend you investigate wheter you can pull it of using just 'ordinary' transactions.
Please start reading here:

and see if it applies to your case. I would have to know more about your specific application and (re)read all this stuff myself too to give a sensible answer. So, read a little and let us know if it solves your problem.

Good luck!
