To import a local CSV file into MySQL, use the syntax below :
LOAD DATA LOW_PRIORITY LOCAL INFILE '/path/tofile.csv' INTO TABLE database.table FIELDS TERMINATED BY ';' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"' ESCAPED BY '"' LINES TERMINATED BY '\n' IGNORE 1 LINES (`field1`,`field2`,...)
Just in case you absolutely have to insert a date in MySQL that does’nt exist, eg 2014-02-30, you can run MySQL server in a special mode that authorizes such dates :
MySQL will only check that the month is in the range from 1 to 12 and the day is in the range from 1 to 31.
