How To - Guide to editing MySQL data within Excel

In previous posts we have talked about importing data from MySQL to Excel, exporting data from Excel to a new or to a existing MySQL table (via the Export Data or Append Data operations) which are common tasks to be performed against MySQL tables. In this post we will talk about possibly the coolest feature in MySQL for Excel which is the Edit Data operation which allows the retrieval of a MySQL table's data to an Excel worksheet so the data can be edited, deleted or inserted in new rows and those changes saved back to the MySQL database in a friendly and intuitive way, and more importantly, without the need of writing SQL queries making it accessible to any kind of user.

You will learn in this guide how to do it and all the details about the Edit Data feature in MySQL for Excel.

MySQL for Excel 1.2.1 has been released

The MySQL Windows Experience Team is proud to announce the release of MySQL for Excel version 1.2.1.

MySQL for Excel 1.2.1 is a maintenance release for 1.2.x containing a handful of bug fixes and the following minor features:

  • When MySQL Workbench is not installed, MySQL connections are now automatically created for discovered MySQL services. If MySQL Workbench is later installed, these connections are not migrated over to MySQL Workbench as MySQL Workbench also creates connections for discovered MySQL services.

You can download MySQL for Excel 1.2.1 from our official Downloads page at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/windows/excel as a standalone MSI, and it will be available shortly in the MySQL Installer for Windows that can be downloaded from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/.

How To - Guide to exporting data from Excel to a new MySQL table

There may be times when you need to create a new table in MySQL and feed it with data from another database, the Internet or from combined data sources. MS Excel is commonly used as the bridge between those data sources and a target MySQL database because of the simplicity it offers to organize the information to then just dump it into a new MySQL table. Although the last bit sounds trivial, it may actually be a cumbersome step, creating ODBC connections within Excel through Microsoft Query may not help since these are normally created to extract data from MySQL into Excel, not the opposite. What if you could do this in a few clicks from within Excel after making your data ready for export to a MySQL database?

With MySQL for Excel you can do this and this guide will teach you how easy it is.
