I'm trying to import in a table with columns (name, x, y, geom) like this:

INSERT INTO public.table (name, x, y, geom)
VALUES ('name', X, Y, ST_GEOMFROMTEXT('POINT(X,Y)', SRC))

But I'm obtaining this error:

ERROR: parse error - invalid geometry SQL state: XX000

X, Y and SRC are integers. I've wrote X and Y as generic.

What's going on?

    WKT only uses commas between vertices, not within them. You've presented a single part point with two vertices, but only one dimension each.

In PostGIS, to insert a geometry/point into a table ('table' in your case), by converting its WKT value, you rather use this :

INSERT INTO public.table (name, x, y, geom)
VALUES ('name', X, Y, ST_GEOMFROMTEXT('POINT(X Y)', SRC))

The X and Y values should not be separated by a comma. Take a look at the official documentation : ST_GeomFromText
