Alright, I learned something new. I performed your
count query, and the result is 3569 rows! So I'm
guessing that Navicat correctly imported everything,
but phpMyAdmin just isn't displaying all the rows.

Navicat gives me nothing but positive messages, though
I don't think it specifies the number of rows loaded.
However, during the import process, there are a couple
panels where you can review your data. I'm not sure if
you're necessarily supposed to be able to preview
every single row, but in this particular case - table
"famarea" - the last row I can see is Andorra.

I looked at the csv file and discovered that the last
field in Andorra is preceded by three commas, whereas
the norm seems to be four commas. However, the row
before Andorra is just one comma. I don't know why the
number of commas should vary.

I could have sworn that I had a working table from a
different database with about 3,000 rows. It's a table
of U.S. counties, and I thought I had working pages
for every state. I was still experimenting with it,
and I can't locate it at the moment. I'll look some

Even better, I put a screenshot online at

...unless you're asking for a more technical
description from phpMyAdmin. I don't know to get that.
