mysqlimport question

Hi all

I have some data in Excel ( I didn't put it there - a customer did ).
I'm setting up an import routine for it, with an Access front-end.
I don't like the way Access imports Excel files, though, and I'm
thinking about getting the user who will import it to first open the
spreadsheet and save it as a csv file.
Then I'll use mysqlimport on it.

Then the fun will begin. The data really is in a horrible format. The
order of each row is important. Can I trust mysqlimport to import the
data in the right order, or is it just by chance that that's the way
it's happened so far?

Thanks!
