How can someone give you a solution when you haven't given any implementation details? Are you using LinqtoSQL? Entity Framework? nHibernate? Something else? Are you looking to do this at a code level? At the database via a stored procedure?

I assume you are using a database. The actual technique will depend on which particular database system you are using. Please use Improve question to add such detail and context so we can better serve you.

Assuming you use a database, the best way is probably to write a stored procedure to do it - and enclose the whole operation in a transaction.
Then, within the transaction you can use @@IDENTITY[^] to fecth the value inserted in the first table, and insert it in the second.

But myself, I wouldn't use Identity values for this - I'd use a Guid value instead, and pass that through from the C# code.
There are several ways of getting the last inserted value for auto generated values such as identity or auto-increment. One simple is to requery the data using the natural key or to use function to get the latest value and so on.

However, I would prefer using OUTPUT clause[^]. This way you can do the INSERT and get the value easily in the same statement without extra roundtrips.
