Customizing common options

All data sources and target tables are specified on previous steps, it's time to define the import process.

 

Logging

Use this option to be informed about all the actions occurred during the import. The log file name may contain current timestamp with the %ts:TIMESTAMP_FORMAT% string.

Examples of valid log file names:

dbname_import_%ts:yyyy_mm_dd%.log

import_%ts:yyyy_mm_dd_hh_mm%_mysql.log

%ts:yyyy_mm_dd_hh_mm_ss%.log

 

Email notification

To send a log file as an email attachment after each import process or in case of an occurred error, specify settings of email(s) to be sent: parameters of your SMTP server, email addresses, subject and body text.

 

 

Scripts

There are many cases where the import process is necessary to correct with additional scripts. So to disable table indexes before the importing, specify the corresponding scripts to be executed before and after the process.

 

The typical example of usage of the Before each table and After each table scripts is the import data to autoincrement columns of several tables. In this case it's neseccary to set the corresponding scripts:

SET IDENTITY_INSERT %table_name% ON

and

SET IDENTITY_INSERT %table_name% OFF

to be executed before and after import data to each table correspondingly.

 

Import mode

If the Update existing records option is turned ON, the records will be either updated or inserted: an UPDATE will be performed when a target row exists in the table and an INSERT is performed when the target row does not exist.

 

LOAD DATA INFILE command

Import Data Wizard supports this command to insert data to the table. This feature can speed up the import process up to 10 times so it is recommended to use it always if possible. Uncheck this option to use INSERT statements instead.

 

Reorder

Data Wizard for MySQL arranges target tables on import by dependencies to inserted records in the correct order. To reorder target tables manually, follow the corresponding button.
