Load Data Infile help

Recommended Posts

I want to use the MySQL LOAD INFILE statement to load in external data from an Excel file. The problem I'm having is that not all fields are ENCLOSED by quotes, but many are.
Here is the code I'm using...

[code]LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE '/Path/to/File' INTO TABLE working_load FIELDS TERMINATED BY ','  ENCLOSED BY '\"' LINES TERMINATED BY '\r'[/code]

What is the proper way to handle a file that will have some fields enclosed by a character, but not all? Or, is there a way I can get Excel to enclose all fields with quotes?

Thanks in advance,
Dave
