Hi MySQL experts, I have a small 250 row excel spreadsheet I want to use to popluate an existing table. I need a: the values to be imported in the correct row based on matching id'sb: I also need to ignore inserting into the first two columns (MakeID and Make) So, the last 3 columns of the csv file are inserted into col3,4 and 5 respectively of the mysql table where MakeID is the same. MySQL Table: MakeID, Col2, Col3, Col4 CSV file MakeID, Make, Col3, Col4, Col51, AUDI, 2000, 20, Sometext2, Alfa, 1987, 25, Somemoretext3, Ford, 1999, 30, Evenmoretext I wanted to do this via phpmyadmin but the Import function doesn't seem to allow for this complexity.

Would it work to delete the Make column and insert the other 4? Why do you need to update versus just inserting the data? If the only thing you're keeping in the row is the MakeID, and the MakeID is also in the spreadsheet, then why not just have the spreadsheet with those 4 columns and insert everything?
