Inserting tuple data into a table 

Tuples are used to group small amounts of data together that are then stored in a column.

Procedure

  • Insert data into the table cycling.route which has tuple data. The tuple is enclosed in parentheses. This tuple has a tuple nested inside; nested parentheses are required for the inner tuple, then the outer tuple.
    cqlsh> INSERT INTO cycling.route (race_id, race_name, point_id, lat_long) VALUES (500, '47th Tour du Pays de Vaud', 2, ('Champagne', (46.833, 6.65)));
  • Insert data into the table cycling.nation_rank which has tuple data. The tuple is enclosed in parentheses. The tuple called info stores the rank, name, and point total of each cyclist.
    cqlsh> INSERT INTO cycling.nation_rank (nation, info) VALUES ('Spain', (1,'Alejandro VALVERDE' , 9054));
  • Insert data into the table popular which has tuple data. The tuple called cinfo stores the country name, cyclist name, and points total.
    cqlsh> INSERT INTO cycling.popular (rank, cinfo) VALUES (4, ('Italy', 'Fabio ARU', 163));
