How to insert a Python tuple in a MySQL database?

Assuming that MySQL database named as test is present on server and a table named employee is also created. The table has five fields fname, lname, age, gender, and salary.

A tuple object containing data of a record is defined as

t1=('Mac', 'Mohan', 20, 'M', 2000)

To establish interface between MySQL  and Python 3, you need to install PyMySQL module. Then you can set up the connection using 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 cursor object


If you check contents of employee table, it will show new record added in it.
