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/.

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/.
