Insert queries are a way to insert data into a table. Let’s say we have created a table using

CREATE TABLE example_table ( name varchar(255), age int)

example_table

Name Age

Now to add some data to this table , we’ll use INSERT in the following way:

INSERT INTO example_table (column1,column2) VALUES ("Andrew",23)

example_table

Name Age
Andrew 23

Even the following will work, but it’s always a good practice to specify which data is going into which column.

INSERT INTO table_name VALUES ("John", 28)

example_table

Name Age
Andrew 23
John 28
