I was able to get the following to work:

insert into test
     'Unexpected event in current state',
     'Backup failed : Please check /u02/backups/backups_26810.err for errors',
     5,null,null,null,null, 1);

Basically I just substituted a single quote for all double quotes and entered
the word null where you had no values entered.
