Hi

I was wondering why i am getting the following error:

C:\>mysqlimport -u root -pxxx test_import C:\employee.txt
mysqlimport: Error: Data truncated for column 'empno' at row 1, when using table
: employee

but everything works ok if i add the --local flag. I don't remember ever having to use this flag before
C:\>mysqlimport -u root -paxxx test_import --local C:\employee.txt
test_import.employee: Records: 3  Deleted: 0  Skipped: 0  Warnings: 9


thanks

The --local flag specifies that the tool reads the data file locally and then send it to server instead of letting server read the file directly.

I guess if your mysqlimport tool and mysql server are mismatched, so that the tool can recongize the format while the server side cannot.
