Importing Data Into MySQL with Navicat
Importing data into MySQL can be challenging if you don't have a MySQL GUI which is simple to use. When this happens, you may feel frustrated and wish you had access to a tool which does this. If you are trying to import Excel spreadsheets into a MySQL database, Navicat is a program which can help you. It will help you save time, making the data entry process much easier.
When data is manually entered, various errors can occur. Navicat utilizes a GUI which resembles Microsoft Access. It also supports MySQL server launcher. A manual is available which will walk you through the steps for using it. It offers such features as data transfer, import/export wizard, and a visual query builder. In addition to Excel spreadsheets, Navicat can also import Microsoft Access files as well. If you are a developer who needs to work with multiple MySQL servers, you can use the Navicat Database Transfer Tool in order to transfer databases between servers.
You can convert documents of different file types into a MySQL database. The Import / Export feature is easy to use, and will make your work easier. The first thing you want to do is install Navicat. Once you've done this, you will be able to make a connection to the MySQL host where you will be importing data. You will need to provide information about your server prior to doing this. Once you're connected, you should be able to view all of your databases on the left side of the main window. If you click on the database button, you will be shown a list of tables.
Now you will want to click on the table you want. After this you will want to click the Import Wizard button. By following these steps, you will be able to import you XML, Excel, or MS Access file into your MySQL database. It is important to make sure you only select tables which have data you want to import. You will also need to choose the data format you want the files to be in. If you are importing text files, you will need to select the correct delimiter.
The wizard will make a guess about the structure of your tables and field breaks. If these guesses are not correct, you can make adjustments. You also have control over your field mappings, and you will want to make sure your data is correct prior to importing it.
