As you found out, there is no magic connection between the results
of a previous SQL command and the DTML variables of a current one.

You need to use either SQL features or work with separate Z SQL Methods
with gluing code in DTML (or, better, Python Script).

You do not told us what database you used. Depending on the system,
you might access "fk_business_id" either with a nested "select" (will not
work with MySQL) or with an SQL function that directly accesses
the "last_value" of "business_name_business_name_seq", e.g.
