You may have covered this elsewhere but I couldn't find it.

I had spreadsheets set up in Excel that I wanted to use as the basis for content in the Contacts plug in. After hours messing about getting the data into the right format (all columns identical to the table headings) I then found that it would not let me import the CSV file into my database.

I searched for ages to find something to import CSV into MySQL, then stumbled across here - it picks up your csv file off your computer and quickly translates it into MySQL (save as a .txt file) so that you can then run the MySQL command into your database.

This may be of use to someone.

I use for such cases software called BK ReplaceEM. It can replace some part of the text by another parts. Sure, if you found something special which converts CSV to MySQL it is better, however, many people often need similar changes and it may be easier to do it with such software than spending a lot of time by searching for something special.

Dear
another good tool for Excel7CSV import is http://www.dbTube.org
You can draw your import definition online with an workflow
editor. The generated improt definition can be used for your further
imports.

greetings

You might try this link. There are a number of links to real software to suit this conversion requirement.

http://mysql-import-multiple-text-files-softwar.software.informer.com/

Often these sites are dynamic in nature so there's no guarantee as to how long the link will work.

If you have access to the data folder a simple alternative is to make a table of type CSV. (normally you have isam or innodb). Instantly you have the csv file in the folder. Just copy your data into it and its available in mysql or insert data into it using mysql and you have it in csv formt.

hope this helps,
