No. I import my data as csv files using Navicat, and I
fix any errors until they import with 0 errors.

I don't recall seeing messages of this nature.

I'm not familiar with that command. If I type select
count (*) into the "query" box on phpMyAdmin, it says 
count(*) = 0 Or is this a type of table query I do on
my webpage?

I checked two tables and found that each end with the
row below (row #480):


This would be row #481:


The fields are all char(3) or varchar(4-255), except
for one int(5). All the Null values are Yes/Null
except for the first and last fields, which are No.
There is no index.

I didn't realize there was a problem until today. At
first, I was struck by the fact that MySQL can somehow
squeeze 3,000 rows into 16 pages!
