Step 3 of 5. Select Source and Destination

On this wizard screen user should select the source MS Excel spreadsheet (*.xls) or CSV file and the destination MySQL database or dump file (depending on conversion scenario has been chosen). If name of an existing MySQL database or dump file is specified, it will be overwritten. While converting from CSV file user should also specify MySQL table name. If name of an existing MySQL table is specified, it will be overwritten.

The sufficient privileges to create new database on MySQL server are required. Otherwise, it is possible to import MS Excel data into an existing MySQL database. See Virtual Server User Notes for related information.

Also, user can specify log file to write execution traces of the conversion process. Leave this field blank to disable logging.
