Can you insert a row into one table and update a row into another table in the same statement?

I need to update a row with a column name 'Status' on table 'RequestForms' and also need to insert a row into a different table named 'Approvals' with the following columns:
RequestFormID, Approval (Y/N), ApprovalDate, ManagerEmployeeID, Comments

Both tables will update depending on which of 2 radio buttons is selected. radApproved or radDenied

An examples to this would be well appreciated.
Thanks,
JS

You implement a transaction.

The solution is composable dml.
INSERT	dbo.Approvals
	(
		RequestFormID,
		[Approval (Y/N)],
		ApprovalDate,
		ManagerEmployeeID,
		Comments
	)
SELECT	RequestFormID,
	[Approval (Y/N)],
	ApprovalDate,
	ManagerEmployeeID,
	Comments
FROM	(
		MERGE	dbo.RequestForms AS tgt
		USING	(
				VALUES	(@Approval, @RequestFormID)
			) AS src(Approval, RequestFormID) ON src.RequestFormID = tgt.RequestFormID
		WHEN	MATCHED
				THEN	UPDATE
					SET	tgt.[Approval (Y/N)] = src.Approval
		OUTPUT	tgt.RequestFormID,
			tgt.[Approval (Y/N)],
			tgt.ApprovalDate,
			tgt.ManagerEmployeeID,
			tgt.Comments
	) AS d;
