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.

MySQL Notifier 1.1.5 has been released

The MySQL Windows Experience Team is proud to announce the release of MySQL Notifier version 1.1.5, the  latest addition to the MySQL Installer for Windows.

MySQL Notifier 1.1.5 introduces the following features:

 

  • The MySQL Utilities can now be opened from MySQL Notifier if installed separately from MySQL Workbench (it is no longer bundled with MySQL Workbench 6.x).
  • Added Workbench connections edition capability right from the Monitor MySQL Server Instance window of the MySQL Notifier (accessed through Actions > Manage Monitored Items… > Add… > MySQL Instance). Any of the listed MySQL Workbench connections can be right-clicked and a new “Edit Connection” context menu is available for users to edit the Workbench connection properties.
  • Changed the way the Workbench connections and servers files are monitored, now the Notifier detects automatically when Workbench is installed or uninstalled and starts or stops monitoring its files on those events so MySQL  Notifier does not need to be restarted to setup the monitoring of the files.
MySQL Notifier is installed using the MySQL Installer for Windows. You can download MySQL Installer from our official Downloads page at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/.

MySQL for Excel 1.1.3 has been released

The MySQL Windows Experience Team is proud to announce the release of MySQL for Excel version 1.1.3, the  latest addition to the MySQL Installer for Windows.

MySQL for Excel 1.1.3 is a maintenance release containing a handful of bug fixes and the following minor features:

  • Upon saving a Workbook containing Worksheets in Edit Mode, the user is asked if he wants to exit the Edit Mode on all Worksheets before their parent Workbook is saved so the Worksheets are saved unprotected, otherwise the Worksheets will remain protected and the users will be able to unprotect them later retrieving the passkeys from the application log after closing MySQL for Excel.
  • Added background coloring to the column names header row of an Import Data operation to have the same look as the one in an Edit Data operation (i.e. gray-ish background).
  • Connection passwords can be stored securely just like MySQL Workbench does and these secured passwords are shared with Workbench in the same way connections are.
  • Changed the way the MySQL for Excel ribbon toggle button works, instead of just showing or hiding the add-in it actually opens and closes it.
  • Added a connection test before any operation against the database (schema creation, data import, append, export or edition) so the operation dialog is not shown and a friendlier error message is shown.

MySQL for Excel is installed using the MySQL Installer for Windows. You can download MySQL Installer from our official Downloads page at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/.
