Automated Data Import from EXCEL

144 New Member

how to programmaticall y from VB .net / php. to import data from an EXCEL file?

is there's no programmatic way, how to automated the process. as i search, the process is:

Simply export data from excel as TXT or CSV. Than use MySQL command
LOAD DATA INFILE 'path/file.txt' INTO TABLE your_table;

1. export data from excel as CSV
2. use the command LOAD DATA INFILE

i can create a batch file to run the LOAD DATA INFILE command, but how can i automated the process to export data from excel into CSV, so users only have to click a single file to export the data.

Thank you.
