You can simply export the spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel as a CSV, then use MySQL Workbench's import function: This solution supports support cells containing line breaks and support cells containing '.

I wrote an application for importing an Excel spreadsheet into MySQL. It meets all your other requirements except specifying columns to import, but it will import everything very fast and you can ignore or remove columns you don't want easily enough. In my biased opinion it is simply the most accurate, easiest and fastest way to import Excel spreadsheets ...

If the way via an intermediate CSV file is OK, I suggest the following workflow: Conversion from Excel to CSV Use xlsx2csv, a python script which is small, efficient and fast. In the most easiest case (Excel file with one sheet) you could get away with the command line: python xlsx2csv.py data.xslx data.csv Conversion from CSV to Markdown Use csvtomd, ...

ABLE2EXTRACT PDF CONVERTER does this brilliantly well. You can check demo video on their page. The thing I love about this software is (and I think its unique to this product alone): You can just select an area from a page (a table in our case) on PDF and ask it to convert. While converting it gives us two options: Automatic or Manual (I just love this). ...

Since you are going to end up in python anyway why not just read the Excel file directly using python in the first place, and do whatever processing you want there? I use xlrd for python all the time and it works great. http://installion.co.uk/ubuntu/saucy/universe/p/python-xlrd/install.html Not xubuntu specific but should get close enough

Try Power Pivot (previously PowerPivot). Power Pivot is an Excel add-in for Excel 2010 and 2013 that allows you to efficiently analyze and report on millions of rows of data. It's not technically OLAP, but I think it meets your primary business goals. When you connect Power Pivot to a data source, such as Microsoft SQL Server, you do it in much the same ...

I have used Palo OLAP with Palo for Excel. Wasn't very practical or fast tho. I have tried Pentaho also. Until version 4.8, not practical at all - too many configs, a simple change in the underlying data structure (or DBMS config) required lots of changes on the software config. Pentaho 5 simplified this very much, but I still feel like having too much work ...

queXF is an Open Source, web based paper form verification and data entry system: It requires you to first express your paper-printed form in the queXML format. queXF then uses this "schema" to recognize fields of the scanned image. Not sure about the Excel format. Free, Open source, seems well-maintained (last release 2 months ago).

What about making use of Windows 7's built in Previous Versions feature? Just right click on the file and select Restore Previous Versions.

I was given an added Bonus of being able to compare to a ...

Since you said that you have Microsoft Excel, I'm going to assume that you also have Access. I am not a great fan of Access but I must say it sometimes is fit and fast for certain task. As far as data entry is concerned: building a database with Access is very easy (they teach it at middle school children and to many not-that-tech people) and then using ...

Try https://sqlizer.io (I work here) which converts Excel (xls and xlsx) files to SQL databases. It's free for small databases (under 5000 rows) then costs $10. You have to tell it which worksheet and range you want to import and then it does a pretty decent job from there onwards.

In Europe (not sure about USA), it is legal to resell software licenses. When PCs are scrapped, companies who buy them for spare parts also run some software which extracts license key numbers, which are then resold on eBay. On Saturday, I picked up a license key for MS Office 2016 pro for US $2.35, and there were plenty more around that price mark. ...
