As in other DBMS, INSERT statement is used in DB2 to perform inserting records in tables, then check the syntax that is used.
INSERT INTO [Table] VALUES ([Values])
INSERT INTO [Table] ([Columns]) VALUES ([Values])
Both syntaxes work properly, the detail is that in the first example shown is necessary to inform a series of data that is compatible with the creation order of the columns in the database.
As a practical example we will use two examples inserting records in a table that stores sales of online store.
INSERT INTO Sales VALUES (‘John’, 3000)
INSERT INTO Sales (Seller, Total) VALUES (‘John’, 3000)
You still have the option of performing an insert from a query in the database as shown in the example below.
INSERT INTO Sales (Seller, Total)
SELECT Seller, Total
In the example given, an old table sales being migrated to the new table and all records will be restored through the command shown.
