To add a row to the employee table for new employee Orebo, you could submit the following statement:

     INSERT INTO employee (name, empno, deptno, dob, sex, edlev)
     VALUES ('Orebo B', 10005, 300, 'Nov 17 1957', 'M', 18) ;

In this example, you list the columns that are to receive the data, followed by the data to be inserted, in the same order as the columns are listed.

If you do not specify a value for a named column, the system inserts a null.
