Import excel file into mysql database

I was looking for information on how to import an excel file or other
text file into a MySql database. I have done this with both access
and SQL Server and am looking for a way to do this in MySql. I have
several hundred items i want to import into a parts database that is
currently in an excel file but can be saved as comma separated or
other format. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in
advance.

Look under the Load Data instruction. I use the following:
LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE 'e:\\sydnet2\\_info\\curdocs.csv' INTO TABLE
pnp_docs_current FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' ENCLOSED BY '"' LINES
TERMINATED BY '\n';
