If you have a script containing INSERT statements for all data, you can execute it in the SQL Commander.

There is also the @import client-side command that is executed in the SQL Commander. With it you can define the import setup using commands only and let it run both in the DbVisualizer GUI or in the command-line interface for DbVisualizer, dbviscmd.

Known limitations

  • Excel files cannot contain CLOB/BLOB type of data (e.g. images etc). Cells with this kind of data are imported as empty.
  • There is a size limitation when importing Excel files with the .xls filename extension. The size limitation is roughly 20 megabytes, depending on your configuration and how much memory is used for other things. Increasing DbVisualizer max memory may allow you to import larger files.
