In this article, we would like to show you how to use INSERT INTO statement in MySQL.

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 INTO statement works, we will use the following table:

MySQL - example data used with INSERT INTO statement
MySQL - 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) into the users table.

Query:

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

Output:

MySQL - INSERT INTO statement result
MySQL - INSERT INTO statement result

Example 2

In this example, we will insert three new users into the users table.

Query:

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

Output:

MySQL - INSERT INTO statement result
MySQL - INSERT INTO statement result

Database preparation

create_tables.sql file:

CREATE TABLE `users` (
	`id` INT(10) UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
	`name` VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL,
	`role` VARCHAR(15) NOT NULL,
	PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
)
ENGINE=InnoDB;

 insert_data.sql file:

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