Simple import csv file question

Simple import csv file question

What's the proper way to import a csv file into a table with SQLite?

https://sqlite.org/cli.html says:

Note that it is important to set the "mode" to "csv" before running the ".import" command.

Assume the table already exists...

Something like this?

sqlite> .mode csv
sqlite> .import mycsvfile.csv mytable

Does this also do the same thing?

.import --csv mycsvfile.cs mytable

I recommend a study of the CLI shell's output in response to: .help import . That will answer the questions you posed and another you might have.
