When I try running the following insert statements, I encounter too many values error
Is it because of the comma delimited string?
If so, what syntax do I use to make this one string?

insert into g_values
  (g_value_id,
   name,
   data_type,
   value,
   description,
   min_value,
   max_value,
   allow_local,
   allow_user,
   synchronize)
values
  ('A1',
   'DATA_FLAG',
   'STRING',
   'MAC','PC','EDSON','LOGITECH',
   'List of itmess.',
   '1',
   '255',
   'N',
   'N',
   'N'
   )

The following is equivalent to 4 values:
'MAC','PC','EDSON','LOGITECH',

If all of this: 'MAC','PC','EDSON','LOGITECH'  goes into one field, then it needs to be a single string:

'''MAC'',''PC'',''EDSON'',''LOGITECH''',

I should also point out that those are all individual single quotes.  No double quotes used.
