Is there a way to name columns in an INSERT statement in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

Yes, we can name columns in an insert statement. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable674(
   StudentId int,
   StudentFirstName varchar(100),
   StudentLastName varchar(100)
 );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.82 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable674 set StudentId=10,StudentFirstName='John',StudentLastName='Smith';
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.19 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable674 set StudentId=11,StudentFirstName='Carol',StudentLastName='Taylor';
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.22 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable674 set StudentId=12,StudentFirstName='David',StudentLastName='Miller';
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.23 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable674 set StudentId=13,StudentFirstName='Chris',StudentLastName='Brown';
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.53 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable674;

This will produce the following output −

+-----------+------------------+-----------------+
| StudentId | StudentFirstName | StudentLastName |
+-----------+------------------+-----------------+
| 10        | John             | Smith           |
| 11        | Carol            | Taylor          |
| 12        | David            | Miller          |
| 13        | Chris            | Brown           |
+-----------+------------------+-----------------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)
