MySQL 1262 Error

Hi,

I get this error when I import a CSV.

Warning (1262): Row 1 was truncated; it contained more data than there were input columns */

See attached screenshot for row 1

See attached screenshot of my Structure

Also, what is the best collation to use?

What is the delimiter set to? If it were a space that would cause the problem. If it is a comma, why don't you show part of the CSV?  If the fields have spaces longer than 50 they could be truncating inside, but it sounds like it is getting more columns that in your database which leads me to suspect the delimiter is a space.

Sample below from link below that.
LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE '/importfile.csv'
INTO TABLE test_table
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ','
LINES TERMINATED BY '\n'
(field1, filed2, field3);

I wonder if the AUTO_INCREMENT column is throwing you off.
Does it work if there is an ID in front of each.
1,text,text,text

Test that. If so you somehow need to ignore the first field. Some one on the web suggested putting @dummy as field 1 so it will get ignored. I haven't tried that.

Or if you do it my way from the TSQL line and name your fields, skipping the ID field (field 1) it may work that way.

Do you have PHP available?  If so, PHP can read the CSV file into an array with fgetcsv(), allowing for a variety of field delimiters.  The PHP code to take these arrays and create INSERT queries is pretty standard stuff.
