Your problem is that DTML and SQL are not executed at the same time.
First the DTML is parsed to make the SQL statement, then the SQL is
shipped off to the database.

if you just lose the dtml-call, i would guess this method would return
a single row with a property lastinsertid..

so , the calling script/template, could probably get to the
value lastinsertid like this
