Multiple Inserts with MySQL
Andy Jarrett posted this technique for insterting multiple rows (bulk insert) in one SQL statement a few months ago. It's a handy trick:
INSERT INTO x (a,b) VALUES ('1', 'one'), ('2', 'two'), ('3', 'three')
I tried that on a couple hundred thousand rows today, and I got an error that my statement was bigger than the Max Allowed Packet size in MySQL. So keep that in mind when using. You can either change the setting, or go about it a different way.
