How do you import CSV data to an existing HFSQL table?

Startbeitrag von Dan M am 03.08.2009 12:28

I have a data file (table) called supplier inventory. We need to update it daily from several suppliers.

Sometimes the data is completely new, sometimes it is updates (quantities and prices change).

I need to append data (new records) and update data of existing records (such as quantity and price).

What are the functions I should be looking up in the help system to figure out how to do this?

What is the process?

Thanks ... Dan


Hi Dan,

See my example that imports to a Countries HF data file in the Windev Solutions forum on this Mysnip site:

Obviously, it's a different file but the technique is the same.

It doesn't do an update at the moment, so you'll need to do something like this - Hopefully, the file you receive will have a field that uniquely identifies an inventory item such as a SupplierID/ProductID for example. So, in the code within the FOR loop, you'll need to add a HReadxxx statement (which ever suits your purpose-probably HReadseek), and test IF the supplier/product combination exists in your HF Inventory file. If it exists then you'll just HModify the fields you need to (quanity & price?). However, if the product doesn't exist you'll want to HAdd the new Inventory.

Oh, and don't forget - you won't need the HCreation statement!

Hope this help...

Hi Dan,

HImportText is actually importing a CSV file. But if you need real sync. check how to do it in the help. See keyword "Replication" and maybe "Universal Replication".

I hope this helps.

Hello Dan

Sometimes it is easier to open csv files in Excel, resave them as an xls file and then use the Windev Excel functions to handle them.

Yes... sorry, I missed that step from my description above - I did the CSV to Excel conversion in my head... oops

My example works from an Excel format...
