Robert Sheldon takes us through data insertion in MySQL:
In most cases, adding a single row of data to table is a reasonably straightforward process. You define the
VALUESclause and usually specify the column list in between. The column list should include only those columns for which you provide values. The list can include the primary key column, generated columns, or columns defined with default constraints, but you must be careful how you handle them, as you’ll see later in the article.
This is definitely aimed at people new to MySQL and SQL in general.
