What kind of settings can we do to a CSV file by query while exporting the values from MySQL table into a CSV file?

MySQLMySQLi Database

As we know that CSV is a simple file format used to store tabular data, such as spreadsheet or database. While exporting the data from MySQL table to CSV file we can use FIELDS TERMINATED BY option to put the values of fields in different cells of CSV file. It can be illustrated with the help of the following example −

Example

Suppose we are having following data from table ‘Student_info’ −

mysql> Select * from Student_info;
+------+---------+------------+------------+
| id   | Name    | Address    | Subject    |
+------+---------+------------+------------+
| 101  | YashPal | Amritsar   | History    |
| 105  | Gaurav  | Chandigarh | Literature |
| 125  | Raman   | Shimla     | Computers  |
| 130  | Ram     | Jhansi     | Computers  |
| 132  | Shyam   | Chandigarh | Economics  |
| 133  | Mohan   | Delhi      | Computers  |
+------+---------+------------+------------+
6 rows in set (0.07 sec)

Suppose we want only two columns ‘id’ and ‘Name’ from the above table to be exported into a file then the following query can export the values of only ‘id’ and ‘name’ from ‘Student_info’ table into a file named ‘student2.csv’ −

mysql> Select id, Name from Student_info INTO OUTFILE 'C:/mysql/bin/mysql-files/student2.csv' FIELDS TERMINATED BY ‘,’;
Query OK, 6 rows affected (0.07 sec)

The above query will create a file named ‘Student2.csv’ and export the values of columns ‘id’ and ‘name’ from ‘Student_info’ table into different cells of student2.csv file.
