Is there some sort of escape character I can use when importing a CSV file into MySQI so that I can get s "/" to show up as text?

" ` " is used as escape character in MySql if you want to use special characters in table name or field name or want to use any reserved word of mysql as table name.

Create table `aa/njh` (col1 INT);

Try the prime symbol (upper left of my keyboard) "`", not the characters that you used.

It would help if you entered here an example of the command you are trying to execute
unsuccessfully.
