control characters in import csv file

arashnz's profile image arashnz posted 1 month ago in Import/Export Permalink

Hello,

In the "import csv file" window there are "fields terminated by" "fields enclosed by" and "fields escaped by" under control characters, what is the difference between them ? I mean i can understand "fields terminated by" and i changed it from " to , in order to import a csv file, but what about "fields enclosed by" and "fields escaped by" ? also what is "optionally" means ? I had a csv file with empty fields and when i uncheck this box all fields imported correctly but i want to know what these things means.

thank you
