Welcome to FindNerd, today we are going to discuss insert data using replace statement in Mysql
Basically REPLACE INTO Statement is used for inserting a row in a table. If we want to replaces any record form our table then firstly old record will be delete and new record will be insert.
So in other words we can say that REPLACE INTO Statement is similar to INSERT INTO statement but it does not allow duplicate row. Old row is deleted before the new row is inserted.
We can see syntax and example below :
REPLACE INTO tablename (column1, column2) VALUES( value1, value2);
REPLACE INTO Employee (name, country) VALUES ( 'Ankush', 'India');
The above query will insert "Ankush" in name column and "India" in country column but if the same name and country are already present in the "User" table than it will replace the old one with the new one.
