Insert array into table (PHP 4 >= 4.3.0, PHP 5)
mixed pg_insert ( resource connection, string table_name, array assoc_array [, int options] )

pg_insert() inserts the values of assoc_array into the table specified by table_name. If options is specified, pg_convert() is applied to assoc_array with the specified options.


This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, the name of this function, and anything else documented about this function may change without notice in a future release of PHP. Use this function at your own risk.



PostgreSQL database connection resource.


Name of the table into which to insert rows. The table table_name must at least have as many columns as assoc_array has elements.


An array whose keys are field names in the table table_name, and whose values are the values of those fields that are to be inserted.


Any number of PGSQL_CONV_OPTS, PGSQL_DML_NO_CONV, PGSQL_DML_EXEC, PGSQL_DML_ASYNC or PGSQL_DML_STRING combined. If PGSQL_DML_STRING is part of the options then query string is returned.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure. Returns string if PGSQL_DML_STRING is passed via options.


Example 1939. pg_insert() example

= pg_connect('dbname=foo');
// This is safe, since $_POST is converted automatically
$res = pg_insert($dbconn, 'post_log', $_POST);
 if (
$res) {
"POST data is successfully logged\n";
 } else {
"User must have sent wrong inputs\n";
