#1354 Checkboxes to import data


What I'd REALLY love to see is the ability, when doing an import, to choose a full .sql file, upload it, then be taken to a page that lists perhaps a treeview of all the tables found, with a checkbox next to each one, then I can put a checkbox in only the ones that I want to import. The PHPMYAdmin will simply import the ones that have been checked.

This would save me alot of work when only wanting to import certain tables from an entire huge database, and having to first open the SQL file in a text editor, manually deleting all of the unwanted tables, or cutting out and pasting of only the tables that I do want, into a new file first.

    I think this is a big feature to implement, I suggest you start with something smaller. Besides, the implementation should first be discussed on the phpmyadmin-devel mailing list, to avoid scaling and performance problems.

    Okay. Can you point me to some of them please. Thank you
