Load data from file into table that has autonum primary key

Recommended Posts

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 (


            name CHAR(30) NOT NULL,

            PRIMARY KEY (id)
