To create an insert_batch array in CodeIgniter, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create an array with data for each row you want to insert. Each row will be represented by an associative array where the keys represent the column names and the values represent the data for that column. For example:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
$data = array(
    array(
        'column1' => 'data1',
        'column2' => 'data2',
        'column3' => 'data3'
    ),
    array(
        'column1' => 'data4',
        'column2' => 'data5',
        'column3' => 'data6'
    ),
    // ...
);


  1. Load the database library in your controller or model, if it's not already loaded. You can load it using the following code:
1
$this->load->database();


  1. Use the insert_batch() method of the database library to insert the data. Pass the name of the table and the array of data as arguments to the insert_batch() method. For example:
1
$this->db->insert_batch('table_name', $data);


  1. The insert_batch() method will automatically generate and execute the necessary SQL query to insert the data as multiple rows in a single operation.


Note: Make sure to replace 'table_name' with the actual name of your database table.
