If a column is defined with a default value in a table, you can use the key word DEFAULT in the INSERT statement to take the default value for that column. The following tutorial exercise gives a good example:

mysql> INSERT INTO fyi_links VALUES (102, 
  'dba.fyicenter.com', 
  NULL,
  0,
  DEFAULT);
Query OK, 1 row affected, 1 warning (0.01 sec)

mysql> SELECT id, url, notes, counts, DATE(created) 
   FROM fyi_links;
+-----+-------------------+-------+--------+---------------+
| id  | url               | notes | counts | DATE(created) |
+-----+-------------------+-------+--------+---------------+
| 101 | dev.fyicenter.com | NULL  |      0 | 2006-04-30    |
| 102 | dba.fyicenter.com | NULL  |      0 | 2006-07-01    |
+-----+-------------------+-------+--------+---------------+
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)
