How are you trying to add the product? Through Magento or through a CSV file?

If you are trying to add a product through Magento, here is a quick video demonstration (there are several more on youtube) How to add a product in Magento

The products are handled in a EAV environment, meaning that the products information is saved in several tables in the database.

The easiest way to find out the database changes is to take a MySQL export of your database pre and post the addition of a product, then use a difference utility (eg. diff, KDiff etc.) to detect the many table changes. Given Magento’s EAV approach, a direct db update for new products is going to be way too complicated for you, and shows a complete misunderstanding of how to use the system. You are better off using the SOAP XML, or PHP Mage object model to do these things.

Here’s a minimum list of skills you will need:
EAV concepts
PHP object based programming
The use of the Mage::app object to manipulate Magento

If you haven’t understood this message, I’m afraid your way too much of a beginner to be developing a module, Magento is not a beginner’s system. You’ve probably got about 6 months to a year before you’ll be up to the required skills to do what you’re trying to do, and you’re not going to get a step-by-step help to do this on this sort of forum - try to help yourself first with your skills before asking others to do your work for you.

Pls Help’ is a ridiculous title to a question posted in a forum, please try to be more specific.
