Not sure I follow. Are you wanting to select the rows from 1 table and insert into another. Are you trying to do this in mysql workbench or do you need to do it in PHP?

two code blocks

I have included the input which I would copy paste or read in from input.txt

and using php, I would like the output echoed to screen or written to output file


In this example I had to copy paste
','
over 100 times

Have a look at this:

<?php 
$file = fopen('data.txt', 'r');

while ($line = fgets($file)):
	$data = explode("  ", trim($line));
	array_walk($data, create_function('&$str', '$str = "\'$str\'";'));
	$newData[] = sprintf("(%s)", implode(',', $data));
endwhile;

echo implode(',', $newData);

Open in new window

It will read your data from a file called data.txt, and split each line on a double space. It will wrap each element in single quotes and then the whole line in brackets. Finally it adds the comma to the end of each line.

As usual, the quality of the solution will be highly dependent on the quality of the test data.
