MySQL’s version of SQL*Loader

Filed under: Uncategorized — Zack Bethem @ 8:51 pm

Just found the nice command built into MySQL to load data files. It couldn’t have been simpler to use. Just be sure to through the right newline. Using ‘\r\n’ worked for a file generated in SSIS in my case.
LOAD DATA [LOW_PRIORITY | CONCURRENT] [LOCAL] INFILE 'file_name'
[REPLACE | IGNORE]
INTO TABLE tbl_name
[CHARACTER SET charset_name]
[{FIELDS | COLUMNS}
[TERMINATED BY 'string']
[[OPTIONALLY] ENCLOSED BY 'char']
[ESCAPED BY 'char']
]
[LINES
[STARTING BY 'string']
[TERMINATED BY 'string']
]
[IGNORE number LINES]
[(col_name_or_user_var,...)]
[SET col_name = expr,...]

See more magic here from the MySQL manual.
