Latest version 7.1 has been released 02/12/2024

Excel-to-MySQL is a program to convert Microsoft Excel spreadsheets into MySQL, MariaDB or Percona databases. It also can extract data from Comma Separate values (.csv) files and store data into MySQL dump files. The program has high performance due to direct connection to source and destination databases (it does not use ODBC or any other middleware software). Command line support allows to script, automate and schedule the conversion process.



  • Supported OS: Windows XP(SP2 or SP3)/2003/Vista/Server 2008/7/8/10, Linux with WINE
  • Microsoft Excel/Office or Access Runtime installation
  • Necessary privileges to write into the destination database


  • Demo version converts only 50 records per table

Virtual Server users option

If you are using Virtual Server hosting you probably have no sufficient privileges to create new databases on the target MySQL server. For this case we recommend the following approach:

  1. ask your Virtual Server administrator to create blank database for you
  2. run Excel-to-MySQL and select this database as the conversion target
  3. click "Yes" when you will be asked if you'd like to overwrite existing MySQL database

When you complete these steps, the entire contents of the source MS Excel spreadsheet will be imported into the specified MySQL database.

MySQL dump file

Excel-to-MySQL converter allows users to perform deferred conversion and get more control over the process. Following this way, the program stores the contents of the data source into a local dump file instead of moving it to MySQL server directly. The resulting file contains MySQL statements to create all tables and to fill them with the data. Click here to learn how to import dump file into MySQL database.

Customize table structure

Microsoft Excel and MySQL have unequal ranges of data types. That's why refining types of certain columns may be necessary during the conversion process. Excel-to-MySQL provides two modes of refining types: automatic types mapping and manual table structure customization. To use automatic mode select "Refine type conversion" checkbox on "Step 2 of 4" wizard page. Manual table structure customization can be accessed by double click on the correspoding table name in "Selected worksheets" list of "Step 2 of 4" wizard page.

This will cause the following dialog box to appear:

To customize type mapping select the appropriate item in the listview on the left and specify new name, type and default value for the field using "Field info" group of controls. Please note that listview on the left contains column attributes of the original types mapping, new custom types and attributes will be displayed in "Field info" controls when the corresponding item is highlighted in the listview.
