View as plain text  
for a table containing:

field a
field b
field c

where a is autonumber, when you just want to append try a perl program to
just strip out that column, then:

load data infile 'FILE_NAME' into table TABLE_NAME (b, c);


p.s. this was in the manual under load data

1 + 1 = 3, for large values of 1. |     ed@stripped    | arino@stripped
