The OP said that cid is autoincremented. With MySQL you don't have to handle an autoincremented column.

    Autoincrementing happens on the insert, not the update. There's not enough info in the OP but cid is either the primary key or part of a compound key and it needs to be part of the update sql. (sigh ... I need to remove *master of subtlety* from my CV).

    This is where DBI]'s last_insert_id comes in handy ... oh, thats only in DBD::Pg but you can always select the highest id immediately after inserting a record.
