Everything seems to work, except I am always getting this message:
Errors: file cannot be opened: [empty]

The csv is not empty!
System: Excel2003-written .csv-file, mysql is hosted on a Linux-Server (standard-ports), PHP Version 4.3.10-16.
What am I doing wrong?

Hi Michael,

I had the same problem, I contacted Alex who wrote the script he pointed me in the right direction. In PHP 4.2.0 and later the $HTTP_POST_FILES array has been changed to $_FILES so you need to change "$csv->file_name = $HTTP_POST_FILES['file_source']['tmp_name'];" to "$csv->file_name = $_FILES['file_source']['tmp_name'];" without the " in the Quick_CSV_import_example.php file.

Good Luck

Gavin Evans
