Setting Defaults in an Insert Into command for SQL

P: 1

I have an issue where I am using INSERT INTO a Customer table with 36 fields- I have information for 2 fields and the

INSERT INTO [Customer](
VALUES ('q1234','EP')

I get an error message..

Msg 515, Level 16, State 2, Line 2
Cannot insert the value NULL into column 'Search Name', table 'Customer'; column does not allow nulls. INSERT fails.
the statement has been terminated.

Is there a way to default the other fields to SPACE or something other than NULL - without defining every field.

Try this:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. INSERT INTO [Customer]( 
  2. [No_],[Name],[Search Name])
  3. VALUES ('q1234','EP','') 
you can set a default in table designer.

Good Luck.
