Convert CSV to SQL

Upload your CSV file, preview your data and automatically convert it to a SQL file.

Convert up to 10 MB for free without creating an account. Uploaded data will only be used for the conversion and will be automatically deleted after converting.

Input CSV

CSV stands for Comma Separated Values and is a plain-text file format that stores tabular data. CSVs are widely used to import and export data for all kinds of services for it's simplicity and ease of parsing.

Row delimiter

The row delimiter is the character used to separate each row in the CSV data. This is usually a new line character (LF), or a carriage return plus a new line character (CRLF).

Konbert will automatically detect this and parse the rows correctly.

Value separator

The value separator is the character used to separate each value inside a row.

For CSV files, as the name implies it is usually a comma, but it can be different depending on the software used to generate the CSV file, we support the following separators:

  • Comma ,
  • Tab \t
  • Pipe |
  • Hash #
  • Semicolon ;

Character encoding

Depending on what software you used to generate the CSV file, it might have a different character encoding

If no character encoding is specified we will automatically try to guess it, so you don't have to worry about it if you're unsure.

Output SQL

SQL stands for Structured Query Language and is a standarized language used to communicate with almost all relational databases. It can be used to query, insert and manipulate data stored in a database.

The exported file will be a SQL dump (.sql) that you can use to import it to your database.

SQL flavour

Since databases have different syntax for some things. You'll be able to choose a SQL database flavour when exporting to SQL, at the moment we support:

  • MySQL
  • PostgreSQL
  • SQLite

Character encoding

The exports will always be encoded in UTF-8.

Is it secure?

We pride ourselves in building a converter that's easy to use, but security is also our top priority.

We understand that some data uploaded might be sensitive, so we ensure that your data is only used for the conversion.

We follow widely accepted industry standard practices when it comes to security:

  • HTTPS is enforced for all communications with our server
  • We enforce a strict access policy and employees or external collaborators never have access to user data
  • All data is always encrypted at rest
  • All data is automatically deleted forever 24 hours after being uploaded.

We allow time days before deleting files just in case you're not done with the data, if you're done with converting a file and want to delete it right away, you can do it yourself through the API.

Note that all files files uploaded without an account are acessible by a unique URL that is hidden but accesible by anyone, so we recommend you to sign up with an account if you want your files to be private, only your account will be able to access your files.
