I have data in the csv file similar to this:
Name,Age,Location,Score "Bob, B",34,Boston,0 "Mike, M",76,Miami,678 "Rachel, R",17,Richmond,"1,234"
While trying to BULK INSERT this data into a SQL Server table, I encountered two problems.
Is there a way to import this data (using XML Format File or whatever) without manually parsing the csv file first?
I appreciate any help. Thanks.
Use MySQL load data:
LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE 'path-to-/filename.csv' INTO TABLE `sql_tablename` CHARACTER SET 'utf8' FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '\"' IGNORE 1 LINES;
optionally enclosed by '\"', or escape character and quote, will keep the data in the first column together for the first field.
IGNORE 1 LINES will leave the field name row out.
UTF8 line is optional but good to use if names have diacritics, like in JosÃ©.
