I assume you mean csv not cvs!
What is the error you get when the import fails? What version of MySQL are
you using? Can you post the output of SHOW CREATE TABLE for the table you
are trying to load the file in to and a sample of the csv which is failing
Do you get the same error if you try and load the files using MySQL client
and the LOAD DATA INFILE command? (See this link for details on how to use
LOAD DATA INFILE http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/load-data.html)

Subject: Newbie question: importing cvs settings
I have a project for which need to import cvs files into db.
I can do so up to a point. The import will only do 16 lines,
consistently. Error is failing at line 17.
create table fields in Excel document, where they all match database fields
enter information in several of the columns, but not all as client will
be filling it in online (leaving ID blank)
save excel to .cvs
log into phpMyAdmin
I've experimented with several settings in the import, but consistently,
it fails at line 17, even with different .cvs files.
Any guidance, most appreciated.
