MySQL INSERT Statement

MySQL INSERT statement is used to insert data in MySQL table within the database. We can insert single or multiple records using a single query in MySQL.

Syntax:

The SQL INSERT INTO command is used to insert data in MySQL table. Following is a generic syntax:

snippet
INSERT INTO table_name ( field1, field2,...fieldN )
VALUES
( value1, value2,...valueN );
Note
Field name is optional. If you want to specify partial values, field name is mandatory.

Syntax for all fields:

snippet
INSERT INTO table_name VALUES ( value1, value2,...valueN );

MySQL INSERT Example 1: for all fields

If you have to store all the field values, either specify all field name or don't specify any field.

Example:

snippet
INSERT INTO emp VALUES (7, 'Sonoo', 40000);

Or,

snippet
INSERT INTO emp(id,name,salary) VALUES (7, 'Sonoo', 40000);

MySQL INSERT Example 2: for partial fields

In such case, it is mandatory to specify field names.

snippet
INSERT INTO emp(id,name) VALUES (7, 'Sonoo');

MySQL INSERT Example 3: inserting multiple records

Here, we are going to insert record in the "cus_tbl" table of "customers" database.

snippet
INSERT INTO cus_tbl
(cus_id, cus_firstname, cus_surname)
VALUES
(5, 'Ajeet', 'Maurya'),
(6, 'Deepika', 'Chopra'),
(7, 'Vimal', 'Jaiswal');

Visual Representation:

insert mysql 1

See the data within the table by using the SELECT command:

insert mysql 2
