In this article, we would like to show you how to useĀ INSERT INTOĀ statementĀ in MS SQL Server.

Quick solution:

INSERT INTO [table_name]
    ([column1], [column2], [column3], ...)
VALUES
    ([value1], [value2], [value3], ...);

or:

INSERT INTO [table_name]
    ([column1], [column2], [column3], ...)
VALUES
    ([value1], [value2], [value3], ...),
    ([value1], [value2], [value3], ...),
    ([value1], [value2], [value3], ...),
    ...;

Practical example

To show how the INSERT INTOĀ statementĀ works, we will use the following table:

MS SQL Server - example data used with INSERT INTO statement
MS SQL Server - example data used with INSERT INTO statement

Note:

At the end of this article you can find database preparation SQL queries.

Example 1

In this example, we will insert a new user (moderator)Ā into theĀ users table.

Query:

INSERT INTO [users] ([name], [role]) VALUES ('Matt', 'moderator');

Output:

MS SQL Server - INSERT INTO statement result
MS SQL Server - INSERT INTO statement result

Example 2

In this example, we will insertĀ three new users into theĀ users table.

Query:

INSERT INTO [users] 
    ([name], [role]) 
VALUES 
    ('Matt', 'moderator'),
    ('Peter', 'admin'),
    ('Jack', 'user');

Output:

MS SQL Server - INSERT INTO statement result
MS SQL Server - INSERT INTO statement result

Database preparation

create_tables.sqlĀ file:

CREATE TABLE [users] (
	[id] INT IDENTITY(1,1),
	[name] VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL,
	[role] VARCHAR(15) NOT NULL,
	PRIMARY KEY ([id])
);

Ā insert_data.sqlĀ file:

INSERT INTO [users]
	([name], [role])
VALUES
	('John', 'admin'),
	('Chris', 'moderator'),
	('Kate', 'user'),
	('Denis', 'moderator');
