INSERT is refers to the SQL command INSERT.


The INSERT command is used to add or insert data into a table. Syntax may vary between certain types of databases but is generally uniform across multiple vendors.


 INSERT INTO <table> [ ( <column> [, <column> [, <column>] [, ... ]]] ) ]
   VALUES ( <value> [, <value> [, <value>, [, ...]]] )


For example to insert the value "foo" into a column called "bar" into a table with name "baz" do the following:

  INSERT INTO baz ( bar ) VALUES( "foo" )

Note: The foo is encased in double quotes this is required for values other than numeric values.

Using the same example as above but use a numeric value of 400 we will not use the qouting.

  INSERT INTO baz ( bar ) VALUES( 400 )


  1. Use the sample database and insert and populate it with the data from the [[File::/etc/passwd]].
