Hi All

My saga continues with getting Base to work with MySQL!! I am almost there
but our "friend" Murphy has caught me yet again.

After a MAJOR battle I managed to get all my data out of the old HSQL
Database. If I tried to extract it all in one go Base either froze or
crashed. So I added a select function to pull out all the 'As", the 'Bs'
etc etc and that worked. I then concatenated all the Data in Calc and spent
a few days cleaning it all up.

Right final step - to INSERT it into the already prepared SQL Databse,
(created using My Admin). I tried the SQL scripts in a terminal for well
over a day with no results except error messages. While Googling about this
I came across a tutorial on how to do this with MyAdmin so decided to go
that route.

After several hiccups due to differences in Field Names all seemed to be
right but do what want I can not get past the error "Invalid column count
in CSV input on line 1." I have tried everything I can think of and tried
all the "answers" I found after lots of Googling but the problem remains!!

Does anyone know what causes this error or better how to fix it??

ANY help would be appreciated

Ian ,

The error means your columns should be listed on line 1 or the column count
does not match the columns within the database. This does not sound like a
LibreO issue but a issue between your CSV files and Mysql.
