Invalid field count in csv input on line 1

July 18, 2009 | Technical Stuffs | , , , ,

When importing CSV data into my MySQL database using PHPMyAdmin, I found following error: Invalid field count in csv input on line 1.

It’s odd since I’ve manually count field numbers and compared with column on my CSV files, they’re exactly match.

Then I found something strange. PHPMyAdmin is automatically use semicolon ( ; ) as field delimiter instead of comma ( , ). Quick fix for this problem is to change the delimiter symbol manually.

In the picture above, I replaced semicolon (rounded with blue circle) with comma and everything is alright.
