SQL As Understood By SQLite




syntax diagram insert-stmt




The INSERT statement comes in three basic forms.

The "REPLACE" and "INSERT OR action" forms specify an alternative constraint conflict resolution algorithm to use during this one INSERT command. See the section titled ON CONFLICT for additional information. For compatibility with MySQL, the parser allows the use of the single keyword REPLACE as an alias for "INSERT OR REPLACE".

The optional "database-name." prefix on the table-name is support for top-level INSERT statements only. The table name must be unqualified for INSERT statements that occur within CREATE TRIGGER statements. Similarly, the "DEFAULT VALUES" form of the INSERT statement is supported for top-level INSERT statements only and not for INSERT statements within triggers.
