Hi,

I'm trying to insert the contents of this this file (assets.txt) into my database:

B02W0Y2^EUROSTAR LTD^35.09^^
B02V64S^NORTHERN ROCK^21.97^^
B06N3Q2^MOTOR OIL SAPA^7.24^^
B05WF50^COLT TELECOM GROUP^20.29^^
B03R2SA^XEROX CAPITAL^35.65^^
B09G3SD^COREALCREDIT^12.10^^
B04F5GD^ULSTER BK LTD^16.46^^
B02DH5H^EUROTUNNEL FINANCE^53.24^^
B05D3WK^BRADFORD & BINGLEY^18.07^^
B05DGEF^SKIPTON LTD^4.50^^
B07DHX4^EBAY INC^46.55^^
B08VEW1^FURSTENBG CAP^86.36^^
B06HS34^LBG CAPITAL^54.22^^

I'm using this code:

mysql_connect($mysql_hostname,$mysql_user,$mysql_password);
$sql = "LOAD DATA INFILE 'E:\EasyPHP-12.1\www\logintest\ASSETS.txt' INTO TABLE stock_names
        FIELDS TERMINATED BY '^'  LINES TERMINATED BY '^^\r\n'";

mysql_query($sql);      

However, nothing is being inserted and no error messages are appearing. Does anybody know what's going wrong?
Perhaps I'm doing it all wrong, in which case can somebody suggest an appropriate alternative?

Many Thanks,

Ed

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "explain stock_names".
There is not output. Nothing inserts into the database.

Try using a tab delimited file instead.
I update 64,000 rows every week using a tab delimited file and it works every time.
Inventing your on type of csv file is never worth the effort when there are tried and tested methods.
