ETL tools transfer delimited files in MySQL?

 Mike -
Hi everybody.

I have several delimited files and want to transfer their content to a MySQL database. Before asking on this forum, I've been browsing the net and heard about open source ETL tools easy to use for non technical users.

Can these products really be used by people who dont have much technical background like me and which one do you think is the most user-friendly ?

Thanks a lot for your feedback.

ETL programs can perform the transfer of delimited files into MySQL. Some of the ETL tools on the market are easy to use and can be operated by non-technical people. Although ETL tools remain very professional and powerful.

There are plenty of tools out there. The one I would propose is the one I am actually using, called Talend Open Studio. It is a very pro tool, designed for a tech savvy crowd, that is also easy to use for non-technical users. You can perform mostly data integration, synchronization and ETL with this tool + other types of operations. Go look at .
