Import From Excel


I was wondering what would be the best way to import data into mysql database.

My sites database has different column names from what the excel will have.

Basically the excel will have most of the same data i.e. name, address etc

Is it a case of changing the column headings in the excel spreadsheet and importing into mysql via phpmyadmin?

Or is there a way Data assist can import and map fields from the data?

Many thanks

You would import via phpmyadmin, or whatever other tool you use to manage your database.

There is nothing we offer to help with this particular task. Some other tools such as navicat or other mysql admin tools may not require you to rename column headings and you can map the columns during the import, but that all depends on the tool you use.
