VALUES Clause

The VALUES clause is used to specify a fixed number of rows. The VALUES clause can be used as a stand-alone statement, as part of the FROM clause, or as input to an INSERT INTO statement.

Examples

Generate two rows and directly return them:

VALUES ('Amsterdam', 1), ('London', 2);

Generate two rows as part of a FROM clause, and rename the columns:

SELECT * FROM (VALUES ('Amsterdam', 1), ('London', 2)) Cities(Name, Id);

Generate two rows and insert them into a table:

INSERT INTO Cities VALUES ('Amsterdam', 1), ('London', 2);

Create a table directly from a VALUES clause:

CREATE TABLE Cities AS SELECT * FROM (VALUES ('Amsterdam', 1), ('London', 2)) Cities(Name, Id);
