ns_db dml inside of ns_db getrow

Hi, I keep getting errors for a ns_db dml "insert bluh bluh" call
inside of a while { [ns_db getrow $db $selection] } loop. If I take
out the ns_db dml statement everything works fine and I can get the
variables and whatnot. But when I put in the dml statment, I keep
getting error ORA-24374: define not done before fetch"

What's going on?

I believe this is because you can't use the handle until you finish your select.

If you are using the ACS and have it properly setup this is a case where you would want to get a handle from the subquery pool.

Else you might need to define a new pool in your nsd.ini file and use that.

This sounds like one of those cases in which you are dragging things from Oracle to TCL and then stuffing back into Oracle, when in fact you can probably do the whole thing while inside of Oracle (the right way) using the right SQL.
    SELECT ename, job, sal, comm 
        FROM emp 
        WHERE comm > 0.25 * sal 
            OR job IN ('PRESIDENT', 'MANAGER'); 

... from the online Oracle SQL docs.

I've tried to do it all in one sql command. But I want to stuff the table with relative_id's selected from one table, and just an integer (photo_id). How do I do that?
