2 Thoughts on “Read from and write to a csv file using php”

  • I have a scenario wherein admns from other departments can upload a (csv) file to server. Data structure is
    name,date,comments. Here in the details column, there may be many occurrences of comma.
    Tom,3/12/2017, Logged the data, ordered 14 pieces

    As you can see there is comma in the 3rd field.

    As a super user, I need to read the csv file,check this column and replace comma with another char and then load in mysql db.

    Can you tell me how to do?
