Hi > Could any 1 please help on how to insert using phpMyAdmin??
I haven't used phpMyAdmin in years, but here's how I'd do it in SQL with my favourite tool (SQLyog) LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE 'C:\file_name.txt' INTO TABLE tbl_name FIELDS TERMINATED BY '\t' LINES TERMINATED BY '\n' IGNORE 1 LINES (col_name1, col_name2, col_name3); Some things to note. 1) the LOCAL keyword is for a file on YOUR computer. Remove it if the file is located on the server. Many shared hosting packages do not allow you to use LOCAL. 2) IGNORE 1 LINES assumes your file has column names or similar in the first line, and ignores them. Remove if the file does not have any, or increase the number if more than one non-data line at the start. 3) The two TERMINATED clauses define the line as being newline terminated and fields separated by tabs. Change these accordingly. You may need to add an extra backslash to escape the backslash for phpMyAdmin, I do not remember how that works with phpMyAdmin. -- Niel Archer -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
