Oracle INSERT statement

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

The Oracle INSERT statement allows you to insert data into an Oracle table by inserting one or more rows of data.

The basic Oracle INSERT statement syntax is as follows:

insert into <table name> (col1, col2, col3,…) 
                  values (val1, val2, val3,…);

If the values listed are in the same order as the table columns and there is a value (even if it is NULL) for each column, you can leave out the column list as in the example above.  The easiest way to determine which columns are in the table is to describe the table (SQL> desc author) as we have been doing in our examples.  If you exclude a column from the Oracle INSERT statement, then the column list is mandatory because the database needs to match the values to the columns.  Excluded columns will contain NULL unless the table has a default value defined for that column. 

For more information on Oracle INSERT statement see the notes below:
