Fill in database with products

I download from my distributor 2 different csv or excel (my choosing) files with all the informations for all products:

------ 1st file -----
5.product name
7.block copy
12.picture sku
14.package contains
16.ROHS? item item date
-------2nd file---------
2.product name
4.your cost

Im trying to find out how i can populate the tables for powerstore2 using these two files, and when needed update pricing on the products.
i was looking at phpmyadmin which is the only app my hosting will allow to use on the database.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can also do this completely with some other third party tool, there are many out there. I think one of the most common is Navicat, but there are many others as well. I also found this link to an online utility that helps to do this:


I don't know anything about this site or the app that it has in regards to security or privacy but it seems to be used a bit.
