You could set a default value on the column in the table design, is that what you mean?

in the column definition for the table   have the phrase  DEFAULT 0

create table x  (col1 smallint default 0  , ....)

or
alter table x alter column x smallint default 0

Insert into x (col2,....)     -- but don't name the col1
  values (1,2,...)     -column col1 will get the default

or Insert into x (col1,col2,...)
 values (DEFAULT,1,2,...)   -- using the KEYWORD DEFAULT


is that what you where asking for ?  otherwise please be specific and state what you need to know understand...

use alter table to create a constraint

alter table emp2
add constraint MyColumnDefX default (1) for MyColumn
