Subject: [PHP] db conversion advice needed


> Hi all,

Which plattform? Mac, Win?

I had once to write an import script for mysql to import a tab-export from
FM Pro Mac. I did it this way:
-HTML-Fileupload
-Translate chars (e.g. german characters , ,  - or in HTML &auml;,
&ouml; - furthermore I translated ASCII 13 to <br>)
-Read in a loop line for line
-Split line by tab
-check if record is already in mysql database (only if you have to import
more than once)
-build mysql insert query
-done :)

If you have more questions or more detailed questions just ask
best regards
