import xlsx file with dates with phpmyadmin

Hi all,

I want to import data from an xlsx file containing dates (see the file attached log.xlsx) in a MySQL db.

I join a snapshot of my webserver configuration (server-config.png) .

Thanks in advance.

I would use phpMyAdmin. There is an import option in there. If xlsx files are not supported, try to open file on Excel an save it as xls or as csv.

Here is a good explanation in how to import a csv file using phpMyAdmin: http://blog.rickyc.org/2011/01/04/phpmyadmin-import-excel-csv-into-table/

Hope it helps.

The problem is to import properly the date to have date fields in MySQL.

Any ideas ?

I think it should work if MySQL fields are date data type, and also your local configuration (on the server where MySQL database is) fits the configuration on your Excel File.
