Insert records in a table is a basic function, but very important and so understand how this command works is essential.

In Oracle, the command used to perform this action is INSERT. In this command are passed fields and values that will be recorded in the registry database, check the syntax of the INSERT command in Oracle below:

INSERT INTO [table] ([fields]) VALUES ([values])

In a practical example we will insert a record into product table with the values of the column Name and Quantity.

INSERT INTO produtos (Name, Quantity) VALUES (‘Tv’, 2)

With the above command will be inserted only one record and so for each new product a new command line will need to be created and executed. But you still have the option of registering multiple records at once using what we call INSERT SELECT, using two commands aggregates is possible to insert multiple records at once. Check the syntax below:


SELECT [fields] FROM [table 2]

By consulting Table 2 you can enter data in Table 1, but remember that the data needs to be compatible if the return of the query is different from the data type of the indicated field for entering the command returns an error message.

As an example we will insert data into the table of products from a table of old products.

INSERT INTO products

SELECT cod_prod, Name, Quantity FROM products_old

Note that the data needs to be consistent so that the command is executed successfully.


With all the changes in the technology increasingly Oracle has been established as a great option in the database, so it is essential to understand its operation.

Oracle is one of the most respected DBMS in the world, created in the late 70s by Lary Ellison, quickly turned into one of the most used and trusted. Your security scheme and processing capacity were some of the features that gave it that title. One of the great advantages of Oracle has always been a pioneer in several features for databases, one of the firsts to think about a model for the web in the late 90s.It is very common to find the database Oracle working with PHP applications in development environments.

PHP Oracle

As it is a powerful DBMS, it is common to see projects using Oracle. Several types of applications work using it, so that it is very common to find large PHP projects that need to connect with this type of database. But depending on the tool used to develop the application, the connection may have problems. An external driver that may be used to make the connection may require development hours until it works perfectly. In addition, issues related to security of the connection (data access) also can be a problem.

Therefore it is essential to have a tool that can assist you in this aspect. With Scriptcase you can easily connect to Oracle database, all you need to inform to connect to the Oracle is:
