How to populate one table with values from another table
i have a table with the following columns
pord_name, prod_brand, prod_photo, prod_desc
and another table with the following columns
prod_name, prod_brand, prod_photo, prod_desc, cat, subcat, prod_price, prod_w_c
i have a for add_prod.php to add products
the prod name is displayed in a select which when product name is selected, populates the prod brand select. on selecting an option in the prod brand, the prod desc is displayed
when i click on the add button, prod_name, prod_brand, etc are added except the prod_desc and prod_photo
can i know what is wrong with the code here please?
$username = $_SESSION['username'];
$sql=mysql_query("select user_id from tbllogin where username = '$username'");
$sql=mysql_query("INSERT INTO tbl_product(user_id, prod_name, prod_brand, prod_desc, prod_price, cat, subcat, prod_w_c) VALUES('$row[user_id]', '$prod_name', '$prod_brand', '$prod_desc', '$prod_price', '$cat', '$subcat', '$prod_w_c') SELECT FROM tbl_prodstd (prod_photo, prod_desc) WHERE prod_name='$prod_name'");
echo '<META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT="0; URL='.$url.'">';
echo "<script>alert('This product has been added successfully.')</script>";

You use $prod_desc in your query but it's not present in the rest of your code.
