INSERT Statements

To create new records, use INSERT statements.

INSERT Syntax

The INSERT statement specifies the columns to be inserted and the new column values. You can specify the column values in a comma-separated list in the VALUES clause, as shown in the following example:

INSERT INTO <table_name> 
( <column_reference> [ , ... ] )
VALUES 
( { <expression> | NULL } [ , ... ] ) 
  

<expression> ::=
  | @ <parameter> 
  | ?
  | <literal>

You can use the ExecuteNonQuery method to execute data manipulation commands and retrieve the rows affected, as shown in the following example:

C#

String connectionString = "InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH;OAuthClientId=MyClientId;OAuthClientSecret=MyClientSecret;CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333";
using (FreshBooksConnection connection = new FreshBooksConnection(connectionString)) {
  int rowsAffected;
  FreshBooksCommand cmd = new FreshBooksCommand("INSERT INTO Clients (Username) VALUES ('John')", connection);
  rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
}

VB.NET

Dim connectionString As [String] = "InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH;OAuthClientId=MyClientId;OAuthClientSecret=MyClientSecret;CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333"
Using connection As New FreshBooksConnection(connectionString)
  Dim rowsAffected As Integer
  Dim cmd As New FreshBooksCommand("INSERT INTO Clients (Username) VALUES ('John')", connection)
  rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
End Using

Retrieving Generated Ids

In order to retrieve the Id of the last inserted record, use the SCOPE_IDENTITY function, as shown in the following example:

C#

cmd = connection.CreateCommand();
cmd.CommandText = "SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY()";
Object returnedValues = cmd.ExecuteScalar();
String Id = (String)returnedValues;

VB.NET

cmd = connection.CreateCommand()
cmd.CommandText = "SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY()"
Dim returnedValues As [Object] = cmd.ExecuteScalar()
Dim Id As [String] = returnedValues
