hi,

I have a table called shoutbox, i created it this way:

CREATE TABLE `shoutbox` ( `id` INT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
`ip` varchar(20) NOT NULL ,
`name` varchar(30)  NOT NULL ,
`url` varchar(30)  NOT NULL ,
`message` varchar(50)  NOT NULL ,
`date` date  NOT NULL ,
PRIMARY KEY ( `id` ) );

but when i want to insert into it some values using following command :

insert into shoutbox values(1, 6546556, sam, something.com,skdsd,23-02-07);

I get the following error:

error 1054(42s22): unkown colum 'sam' in 'field list'

ps. i am using mysql 5.0

thanks

Hi, are you aware of syntax for INSERT statement? anyways,

1. the first thing you need learn is syntax for INSERT statement.
Syntax 1 =>

INSERT INTO TABLE table_name values(value1, value2...)

If you using the above syntax, make sure you provide, all values to all fields in the table and the values should in the order as that of field in the table.

for eg: if a table is like,

create table TEST
( 
column1 int,
column2 varchar(10)
)

then the insert statement for this looks like

insert into TEST values(1, 'apple')
insert into TEST values(2, 'strawbery')

Syntax 2 =>

INSERT INTO TABLE table_name (column1, column3, column8) values(value1, value3, value8)

can observe the flexibility in the second syntax? i.e you can insert values into only those columns for which know values. Make sure, you provide the values in order as that of the column name you specify.

NOTE:
Whenever you are using the syntax 2, make sure you will insert values for PRIMARY KEY and/or fields which are NOT NULL.

2. fields which expects string or of char type, provide values in quotes.

so your insert statement will now become,

insert into shoutbox(id, ip, name, url, message, date) values(1, '6546556', 'sam', 'something.com', 'skdsd', '23-02-07');

or

insert into shoutbox values (1, '6546556', 'sam', 'something.com', 'skdsd', '23-02-07');
