Migrating data from Excel(*.xls; *.xlsx) to MariaDB

This guide will show you how to easily migrate data from MS Excel to MariaDB through a few simple steps with ESF Database Migration Toolkit, simplifying the complex migration processes and saving you valuable time.

MS Excel vs. MariaDB:

  • Microsoft Excel is a powerful spreadsheet software developed by Microsoft, widely used for organizing, analyzing, and visualizing data. It offers a wide range of features including calculation, graphing tools, pivot tables, and a macro programming language called Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). Excel enables users to create complex formulas, perform data analysis, and generate professional-looking charts and graphs. It is extensively utilized in various fields such as finance, accounting, engineering, and data analysis for its versatility and ease of use.
  • MariaDB is a powerful open-source relational database management system (RDBMS) that originated as a fork of MySQL. It was developed by the original creators of MySQL in response to concerns over its acquisition by Oracle Corporation. MariaDB retains compatibility with MySQL while offering additional features, improved performance, and enhanced security. It is widely used in various applications ranging from small-scale web databases to large-scale enterprise systems, thanks to its flexibility, scalability, and active community support.
