I also tried union

select ('value1','name1')

but it did not work either. any ideas?



RE: Sql to insert multiple records how to

Hi there

Just happened to be looking for something else in the informix doc but notices a short statement affecting your query.

Says" VALUES Clause
The VALUES clause can specify values to insert into one or more columns.
When you use the VALUES clause, you can insert only one row at a time.
Each value that follows the VALUES keyword is assigned to the corresponding
column listed in the INSERT INTO clause (or in column order, if a
list of columns is not specified)."

Guess you will have to script it to submit multiple transactions/inserts.
Regards ACO
