How can I load many files into mysql automatically add date information?


I have many files, for example: 20170319, 20170320 ... For each file I have 2 columns, one for username and the other was data. I've created a table

create table A(user varchar(35), date date, data varchar(35), primary key(user, date));

Then, I want to load those files into database, and use filename as specific date in date field.

Can I still use sth like:

Load data infile '20170320' into table A


The answer is that you cannot do this in MySQL alone, you need to use an external program or script that builds the load data infile statements with the appropriate <a href="https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/load-data.html" rel="nofollow">SET clause</a> derived from the name of the file:


The SET clause can be used to supply values not derived from the input file. The following statement sets column3 to the current date and time:

LOAD DATA INFILE 'file.txt' INTO TABLE t1 (column1, column2) SET column3 = CURRENT_TIMESTAMP; </blockquote>

The reason for this is that:

<ol><li>load data infile cannot use the file name as an input variable</li> <li>neither MySQL prepared statements using the <a href="https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/sql-syntax-prepared-statements.html" rel="nofollow">prepare statement</a>, nor <a href="https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/stored-program-restrictions.html" rel="nofollow">stored procedures</a> are allowed to use the load data infile statement.</li> </ol>
