Assuming that a MySQL database named 'test' is present on the server and a table named employee is also created. Let the table have five fields fname, lname, age, gender, and salary.
Suppose we want to insert a tuple object containing data of a record defined as follows into the Msql database.
t1=('Steven', 'Assange', 21, 'M', 2001)
To establish an interface between MySQL and Python 3, you need to install the PyMySQL module. Then you can set up the connection using the following statements
import PyMySQL # Open database connection db = PyMySQL.connect("localhost","root","","test" ) # prepare a cursor object using cursor() method cursor = db.cursor()
Next step is to set up the insert query using data in the tuple
sql="insert into employee values(%s,%s,%d,%s,%d)" %t1
Now this query is executed using execute() method of the cursor object
If you check the contents of the employee table, it will show a new record added to it.
