PeopleTools Reference: Meta-SQL %Insert

generates an Insert statement to insert the data from a record object into the database.

Remember that a record object (not a record definition) stores both the record structure (table name and field name) and the field values. Therefore, the system has everything it needs to write an insert statement: insert( … field list … ) values ( … options …).


Local Record &myRecord;
&myRecord.KEY1.value = “Key Value”;
&myRecord.FIELD1.value = “Field Value”;
SQLExec(“%Insert(:1)”, &myRecord);
