#844 state county fip data coordination


I am trying to insert a county search feature into my
program. I have a table of states, and now I want to
add a table of state counties

Ex. I have a table which identifies the state of
Pennsylvania as PA 42000

Now I want to make a table which identifies the
counties of PA ex.

42001 Adams
42003 Allegheny
42005 Armstrong
42007 Beaver
42009 Bedford

What is the procedure for uploading a lot of county data?
What is the procedure to link the state code with the
county codes within the mysql table?
What is the best php procedure to extract the data?

    Best way to upload huge data is using command line mysql,
    you can link InnoDB tables by native relations. Extract data
    as any other.

    I don't see here much phpMyAdmin related.

    Hi nijel,

    Hi Nigel,
    You may be right that about my questions not being related
    to phpMyAdmin. If so, then I appologize, but thanks for
    your feedback anyway. I posted to the phpMyAdmin forum
    because that is what I currently use to make small editing
    changes to the tables in my MySql database. I was told that
    it is much easier to manage the databases with phpMyAdmin
    than through MySQL. However, you are suggesting that I was
    given some bad information. Again, my appologies.

    For small changes it is best :-). Hoverver for uploading big
    database, command line client is better.
