Hello, I'm trying to insert data into a table, but can't seem to get the actual code right, when I put it in, it tells me that there is a comma missing, can anyone help me? Here is the code I have that is giving me the error:
INSERT INTO Orders VALUES('00001', 'c001', 'ca01', '20.5', TO_DATE('12032009', 'DDMMYYYY');

PROGRAMMING 101 basic tenant is quotes must occur in pairs & for every opening parenthesis a closing parenthesis must exist.

In addition to Blackswan answer, if you use SQL*PLus it will tell you the right message and point to the character where it fails.

And doing a blind insert without naming the columns is also poor programming.

all good advice. Hope the OP has got an answer since we have no response yet.

As was alluded to by previous posters, your issue is not missing comma.
