SQLite import from .csv file

Here are the quick and easy steps to import the contents of a .csv file into your SQLite3 database.

Open the db via the command line:
sqlite3 myDatabaseName

Enter the following commands:
.separator ","
.import myFile.csv tblMyTable

And that's it.  If your .csv file has a different separator character, just replace the comma with your character.


  • So if I have a mySQL database and I export it using a util like PHPMyAdmin into a CSV file, I can import it into SQLite this easily?? Would I have to pre-set up the tables in SQLite first?
