INSERT Statement Extension

The PL/SQL extension to the SQL INSERT statement lets you specify a record name in the values_clause of the single_table_insert instead of specifying a column list in the insert_into_clause. Effectively, this form of the INSERT statement inserts the record into the table; actually, it adds a row to the table and gives each column of the row the value of the corresponding record field.
