Access last inserted row in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

If you are AUTO_INCREMENT with column, then you can use last_insert_id() method. This method gets the ID of the last inserted record in MySQL.

The syntax is as follows

SELECT LAST_INSERT_ID();

To understand the above syntax, let us create a table. The query to create a table is as follows

mysql> create table LastInsertedRow
   - > (
   - > Id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   - > UserName varchar(20),  
   - > UserAge int
   - > );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.56 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command.

The query is as follows

mysql> insert into LastInsertedRow(UserName,UserAge) values('John',23);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.19 sec)
mysql> insert into LastInsertedRow(UserName,UserAge) values('Carol',24);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.16 sec)
mysql> insert into LastInsertedRow(UserName,UserAge) values('Bob',24);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.08 sec)
mysql> insert into LastInsertedRow(UserName,UserAge) values('Larry',26);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.09 sec)
mysql> insert into LastInsertedRow(UserName,UserAge) values('Maxwell',27);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.10 sec)
mysql> insert into LastInsertedRow(UserName,UserAge) values('David',22);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.10 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement.

The query is as follows

mysql> select *from LastInsertedRow;

The following is the output

+----+----------+---------+
| Id | UserName | UserAge |
+----+----------+---------+
|  1 | John     |      23 |
|  2 | Carol    |      24 |
|  3 | Bob      |      24 |
|  4 | Larry    |      26 |
|  5 | Maxwell  |      27 |
|  6 | David    |      22 |
+----+----------+---------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to get the last inserted row

mysql> select last_insert_id();

The following is the output

+------------------+
| last_insert_id() |
+------------------+
|                6 |
+------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

If you want the entire row, then use the following query

mysql> select *from LastInsertedRow where Id=(SELECT LAST_INSERT_ID());

The following is the output

+----+----------+---------+
| Id | UserName | UserAge |
+----+----------+---------+
|  6 | David    |      22 |
+----+----------+---------+
1 row in set (0.05 sec)
