.CSV import help
« on: November 21, 2009, 01:25:54 PM »
I downloaded the entire FAA database and processed the information in a spreadsheet so it matches the RB format. I've also combined all my milair and international data in it.  Now I have a 54MB file with over 462,000 records that I want to import and replace all the data currently in my database file.

I haven't been able to figure out this SQLite stuff.  I thought I did what was needed to import a .csv but after letting it run all night it didn't work.  I don't know if it's just because there is so much data or I'm doing it wrong.

I have not used SQlite so I can't offer any advice on its use, but I would recommend that you make your self a test csv file of say 50 records and experiment, that way you wont have to wait so long to see the results.  Once you have success with the test csv go ahead and try it with  the master file

Tarbat is probably the guy you need. He seems to be up on the SQLite.

Post a 50 record version of the csv file here as an attachment, and I'll take a look.

I've tried it with the first 50 and a random 50 records and it works.  I've tried it with more records, like ~10,000, and the records are visible in the new table and the cursor shows busy when over that window.  If I click it anymore it will say (Not Responding).

I've been able to get it to import 34,000 records at a time.  It takes about an hour.

Tarbat, could you help me out with an SQL string that could combine these tables, one at a time or all at once?

Thanks
