Hello Arquelo.

Welcome to!

Please run the sample SQL script below to import your CSV file to your MySQL table.

The example below assumes the following:

1.  Your csv file is named "mytable.csv" with 3 columns of data.

2.  The table you want to import the csv to is "tblMyTable".

3.  The table "tblMyTable" has 3 columns named "Column1", "Column2" and "Column3".

Just replace everything with the actual file name, table names, column names and other information for your particular need.

Start of code snippet

load data local infile 'mytable.csv' into table tblMyTable
fields terminated by ','
(Column1, Column2, Column3)

end of code snippet

Hope this helps you out!
