it's not recommended you use INSERT command without column list:
please use this syntax:
INSERT INTO table_name (colname1, colname2 , ....) values (val1,val2, ...);

instead of:
INSERT INTO table_name values (val1,val2, ...);

your used syntax is error prone, and might your values insert into table in another column names that has an invalid data-type ...
