Hi everybody. right now i'm doing a hotel reservation system using php and phpmyadmin. The process involved

1) user inputs check-in and check-out dates (to check what rooms are available during the dates input)
2) database is queried for all room categories AVAILABLE within the dates indicated

step 1 and 2 work out well using the query below :

(
SELECT rt.roomtypeID, rt.roomtype, rt.roomprice
FROM roomtype rt
INNER JOIN room r ON rt.roomtypeID = r.r_roomtypeID
WHERE r.room_status = 'available'
AND r.room_no NOT
IN (

SELECT b_room_no
FROM booking
WHERE checkin >= '2010-04-04'
AND checkout <= '2010-04-06'
)
GROUP BY rt.roomtypeID
)

Then a problem arise..
How can I assign ROOM NO for any customer who has just make a reservation.

I have a 'room table' and 'roomtype table'.
right now when user make a reservation, i will assign them a random number based on the roomtype they had choose.

example : roomtype Single=10 rooms, Deluxe=10 rooms, Suite=10 rooms.

right now this is the only things that i can think right now..

(SELECT room_no FROM room WHERE r_roomtypeID ='single' AND room_status='available' ORDER BY RAND( ) LIMIT 1");

And it did work out. But then, i was thinking, how can i automatically assign the status of"unavailable" for the room no that was just assign to the customer who had just make reservation.
So, next time if another customer wanted to make a reservation, the random number that will be selected will not involved the room that has status room_status='unavailable'.

I appreciate any ideas, keyword too google for , or any articles that i can refer to in solving this matter:)

here is my database:

CREATE TABLE `booking` (
  `bookingID` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  `b_ic_no` varchar(30) collate latin1_general_ci NOT NULL default '',
  `b_room_no` int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
  `checkin` date default NULL,
  `checkout` date default NULL,
  `nights` int(11) default NULL,
  `totalprice` int(11) default NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY  (`bookingID`,`b_ic_no`,`b_room_no`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB  DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 COLLATE=latin1_general_ci AUTO_INCREMENT=7 ;

It is possible to use a trigger. When you insert a new reservation with a room no, a function is triggered, in which you can set the room to unavailable. Mysql documentation has a lot of info about it.
