converting databases to sql

Recommended Posts

hi! i have a basic grip of mysql, and would like to know if and how it is possible to convert a database into a sql file without re-entering all the information. i own a bookstore, and enter all my inventory into a program called homebase. this can be exported into comma or tab delimited files.

 

any help or direction to a site that would give me information/tutorials would be greatly appreciated. thanks!!

Hi,

 

I would recommned you to refer the mysql manual

 

http://www.phpfreaks.com/mysqlmanual.php

 

To load data from a csv file

 

LOAD DATA INFILE \'<file_name>\' INTO TABLE <table_name> FIELDS TERMINATED BY \',\' LINES TERMINATED BY \'n\' 

 

I would also recommend you a tool called sqlyoy which is a windows GUI based tool whcih can help you to execute batch script (.sql) and import/export data.
