How can I update the autonum file when I am loading data from a csv text file?

I have Field 2, Field 3, Field 4, etc. in my text file.

In the table Field 1 is set up as an autonum Primary key. When I tell it to load the data file using columns 2 - 4 it loads the rows but leaves the first field blank. What would I need to add to the syntax to have it also populate the primary key with the autonum values? :roll:

Make the field auto increment

Here is an example taken from the manual

CREATE TABLE animals (             id MEDIUMINT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,             name CHAR(30) NOT NULL,             PRIMARY KEY (id)             );
