INSERT Statements

To create new records, use INSERT statements.


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> [ , ... ] )
( { <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:


String connectionString = "URL=;User=username;Password=password;CustomService=servicename;";
using (SAPByDesignConnection connection = new SAPByDesignConnection(connectionString)) {
  int rowsAffected;
  SAPByDesignCommand cmd = new SAPByDesignCommand("INSERT INTO Account (Name) VALUES ('John')", connection);
  rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();


Dim connectionString As [String] = "URL=;User=username;Password=password;CustomService=servicename;"
Using connection As New SAPByDesignConnection(connectionString)
  Dim rowsAffected As Integer
  Dim cmd As New SAPByDesignCommand("INSERT INTO Account (Name) 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:


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


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